SUE RODRIGUEZ... JULY 19TH,2013
Sue Rodriguez...July 19th,2013
It was back many years ago; they told Sue Rodriguez where to go,
She was dying with painful Lou Gehrig’s disease at the time though,
And she wanted to die with dignity and without much pain,
But our appointed Supreme Court were not very humane.
And even today, politicians will not discuss this subject,
They are afraid they might get involved in some conflict,
But Pauline Marois, premier of Quebec, knows what to do,
She’s going to legalize death-with-dignity but who knew?
Canadians should have a referendum at least once a year,
Everyone obliged to attend and vote and show no fear,
Unfortunately the activists with agendas want involved,
I sometimes wonder if Canadian DWD will ever be solved.
