After a string of hits, Unborn Child was a mistake coming from the Seals & Crofts camp when it did. Blatantly anti-abortion, it did little to help their careers and nothing in the way of chart success. But one must consider that it does hold good music in its grooves, and with today's attitudes changing, perhaps this isn't as harsh as it first appeared to be.
Oh little baby, you'll never cry, nor will you hear a sweet lullabye. Oh unborn child, if you only knew just what your momma was plannin' to do You're still a-clingin' to the tree of life, but soon you'll be cut off before you get ripe Oh unborn child, beginning to grow inside your momma, but you'll never know Oh tiny bud, that grows in the womb, only to be crushed before. This is the lead single off of their 1974 album of the same name. Abortion on demand had just been legalized, and it was still very controversial. The idea came from the wife of one of their musical partners; she had watched an abortion documentary and was inspired to write a pro-life poem, which Seals and Croft then set to music.

Unborn Child is the sixth studio album by American pop/folk duo Seals and Crofts. It included two low-charting singles, the title track (which reached No. 66) and "The King of Nothing", which reached No. 60. The project originated when Lana Bogan, wife of recording engineer Joseph Bogan, watched a TV documentary on abortion and she was inspired to write a poem from the perspective of the terminated fetus.
