lyrics

[setting: an abortion clinic. protesters are outside with signs, shouting. one protester slips inside the clinic. she stashes her sign behind a plant and walks to the receptionist area. she confirms an appointment and sits in the waiting area, looking around at the other women there.

I'm Different

(Karin:)
This one’s a tramp, this one’s a whore
These women are loose and they’re probably poor
uneducated, no morality
not one of them anything like me…

I’m different
Unlike these other girls I come from a good home
No sins to be atoned
I’m different
It’s just my circumstance that brings me here today
For me it is okay
but abortion is murder and murderers must pay

(Doctor enters and sings:)
I love aborting babies
It’s what I was born to do
And if you were a baby
I’d try to abort you

(Sugar Dish / Receptionist:)
I get employee benefits, every tenth one's free

(Robyn:)
I'm not even pregnant, abortion's fun for me

(Lainey:)
Back in the day I was on the streets, we would dumpster dive
behind this very clinic, eating babies to stay alive

(All except Karin):
but...

she's different
unlike us she has got real reasons to be here
a moral pioneer
she's different
and she's pro life because the unborn have no voice
(Karin:)
i didn't have a choice
my predicament has led me here
(Lainey:)
and so has screwing boys

(Karin:)
They’re killing babies and there’s nothing more perverse!
(All but Karin:)
No doubt about it, we’re all murder - ers!
(Karin:)
It would be better if somebody killed you first!
(All:)
somebody kill us
somebody kill us
somebody kill us first!
