“Little Songs of Long Ago” offers commentary on reproductive rights, specifically abortion, by co-opting traditional children's nursery rhymes for satirical purpose. This is an attempt to exaggerate the juvenile status given to women seeking to make their own reproductive choices. In consideration of the multitude of proposed State bills seeking to limit the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, women's autonomous roles to make reproductive choices for themselves is challenged.
