Unborn Child is the sixth studio album by American pop/folk duo Seals and Crofts. It included two low-charting singles, the title track (which reached #66) and "The King of Nothing", which reached #60. The album's title track was deemed controversial at the time because of its pro-life stance. As a result, pro-choice advocates boycotted the album and the duo's concerts.[citation needed]
