Considering it's been a while since anyone else posted in this thread, I presume the question was addressed to me. Hello and welcome, btw.
As far as Michael's song is concerned, I think it is quite interesting, a bold choice for a theme and in terms of lyrical content he seems to try and express the conflicting and most burdensome feelings involved in such a complex situation. Although, with Mike being Mike and singing in Jacksonese, I don't think all of the words are crystal clear. I may be slightly fluent in Jacksonese, but even I don't get some of the stuff he sings lol. I actually checked some lyrics websites and they have rather contrasting understandings of the lyrics. In any case, I suppose they connect with other songs too. Take for example that one line from WBSS - if you can't feed your baby, don't have a baby and also the next verse from Shout
poisoned your body and your soul for a minute of pleasure,
but the damage that you've done, is gonna last forever,
babies being born into the world, already drug addicted and afflicted,
family values are contradicted.
I've always perceived Michael to be more conservative in outlook than he let on. His lyrics are sprinkled with ocassional glimpses of it and although he was a bit too shy and too discreet of a Christian artist for my expectations, I also understand his reluctance to pursue that artistic avenue.
After all, his was the most diverse audience possible - not just in terms of race, ethnicity, age and social background, but also in terms of spiritual tradition or lack thereof. His fans were/are everything from ardent atheists and agnostics to followers of Islam, Buddhism, Judaism and all varieties of our amazing, but sadly fractured Christianity. It's only natural he would be weary of not offending the part of his audience that did not resonate with the Christian message. Therefore, he chose more general themes like social justice, the environment, media attacks or romance.
Thankfully, I have no such pressures or concerns. Other than my intense love for Michael and his music, I think I've made it abundantly clear over the years just how much I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Good News that He brought through His Incarnation, Passion and Resurrection - that God is with us and for us, ever present, ever loving.
And btw of the issue of abortion, with the risk of applying self-referencing, I actually had a rather long intervention about it in March 2017, I believe it is on page #111. Most of it contains quotes from an amazing encyclical. I don't really see how I could improve on it.
Couple of more things though - just because I care so deeply about these issues, it doesn't mean I expect anyone else to feel the same way. We've long passed the age of conversion even by the word. God gave us the ultimate freedom - to deny Him, disobey His laws and reject His Son. Therefore, anyone trying to restrict the God-given freedom of fellow humans is bound to fail.
The duty for those of us who embrace the Gospel is only to warn people of the consequences of their choices, because of God's judgement, but also to reassure them of His forgiveness for repentant sinners, because of His infinite Mercy. I've always loved the example of St. Dismas, the penitent thief, who was saved by Jesus because of the faith he showed during the Crucifixion. His example shows that there is hope for anyone and everyone, even those who have spent a lifetime away from God.
Thank you for your question btw. To be honest, it was starting to feel a bit like a monologue in here.
