The song is also heavy on its subject matter, which in addition to conveying a message of female empowerment, is also a protest of sorts against US decisions to ban legal and safe abortion. The lyrics bring up impressive passages when talking about sexual freedom and the decision to ban abortion even in cases of risk to the life of the mother:
- God forbid I wanna suck whatever I want / God forbid I fuck whoever I want / And if he ejaculates, I guess I’ll have to be a mom (God forbid I suck whoever I want / God forbid I fuck whoever I want / And if he cums, obviously I have to be a mom,
- Fuck what I think, I don’t know nothing / The government knows my body / No, it’s okay, it’s better this way, I’m only a carbon copy / Even if I’m dead, they’ll still try to stop me (Fuck what I think, I don’t know shit / The government knows my body / No, it’s okay, it’s better this way, I’m just a carbon copy / Even if I’m dead, they’ll still try to stop me,

Demi Lovato Addresses Reproductive Justice in Statement
In a press release, Lovato also expanded on the comments about the new song’s prologue and explained the inspiration behind it in a more didactic way:
It’s been one year since the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the constitutional right to safe abortion, and though the road ahead is challenging, we must remain united in our fight for reproductive justice. I created Swine to amplify the voices of those who defend the right to choose and the autonomy of bodies. I want this song to empower not only the people who gave birth in this country, but everyone who stands up for equality, to embrace the power of their agency, and to fight for a world where everyone’s right to make decisions about their own bodies is respected.
It is also notable that, in the clip, Demi Lovato is seen tearing up a document, which appears to be a metaphor not only for the law concerned, but also for the fact that religious issues guide many court decisions in the US and other countries around the world.
As of now, there is no information on whether “Swine” will be a part of the successor. Holy FVC Or simply become a new single for the singer.
