Michael Jackson Goes Pro-Life on 'Bad 25' Track (Audio)
Michael Jackson was famous for singing, "The kid is not my son," but on another archival track, the late King of Pop changed his tune.
"Song Groove (A/K/A Abortion Papers)," a bonus track released on this week's Bad 25 anniversary reissue, finds Jackson singing directly about abortion: "Those abortion papers/signed in your name against the words of God/Those abortion papers/Think about life, I'd like to have my child."

Despite the serious subject matter, "Song Groove" is an upbeat dance track, in line with the rest of the Bad extras.
Bad was originally released in 1987; Jackson would become the father of three beginning with the birth of Michael Joseph "Prince" Jackson, Jr. in 1997.
