A teenage girl has written a heartfelt plea to save unborn children from abortion.

Estelle Dawson, a 15-year-old supporter of the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC), sent the poem to John Smeaton, SPUC’s chief executive, following SPUC’s annual youth and student conference. Estelle explained: "There was no great intention in my poem other than turning the way I felt into words in the hope of making people think about the legal murder that we accept as a 'normal' part of modern life.”

Her poem is entitled Mass Slaughter of Mankind and reads:

If you were to find,
A new child of mankind,

Would you end its life?

I'm sure you wouldn't,
Or better yet, that you couldn't,

You would not end its life.

This living child,
Oh so gentle, oh so mild,

You would not end its life.

Its small feeble hands,
The way it can't stand,

You would not end its life.

It's beauty in existence,
Gods creation and consistence,

Could you end its life?

If you agree,
Then why be an adoptee,

To malicious inhumanity,
For reasons such as vanity,

When you could be antiabortion,
And stop this human distortion,

To not think it's okay,
To murder and betray,

Someone so delicate and frail,
Just because you're a female.

So, would you still end their life?
