A NEW CANADIAN CONSTITUTION... APRIL 24TH,2013
Trudeau's Charter of Rights denies us the right to die,
You are forbidden to decide when, where, how or why,
If we the people had binding referendums, we could decide,
To get euthanasia when and if and where, we wanted to die.
There is no doubt that the whole idea is locked and no one will confront,
The idea of assisted suicide brings a lot more to the front,
A hundred thousand abortions a year doesn't phase us a bit,
Why should the helpless and the dying feel trapped in our fit?
These so called pro-life opponents are not at the abortion clinic,
Plus; those who are oppose to abortions also seem to be cynics,
This issue is another symptoms of our lack of authority,
We've given it to politicians who behave like they're a majority.
