Can I Live?

In honor of Sanctity of Life Day, and in view of the week to come, with its inauguration of the first black president and the March for Life, we present an oldie but a goodie: Nick Cannon’s remarkable video for his song “Can I Live.” Now, for all I know Cannon has further repudiated the pro-life message and maybe even campaigned for Obama. But the power of this piece is truer than all that.
