Medical Aid In Dying... - Poem by James Bredin
“Assisted suicide, ” has to change to “medical aid in dying.”
The Ottawa establishment doesn’t like what we are trying,
Our Supreme Court told Sue Rodriguez with Lou Gehrig’s disease “No.”
She couldn’t die in dignity and Canadians have to kowtow.
Death with dignity is banned but not abortion clinics,
This arrangement and dead babies, might cause you to be a cynic,
You have to obey the law though you too might die in extreme pain,
You have no input and you have no political campaign.
Our politicians and appointees tend to hide from this subject,
It’s immaterial that the end of your life could be such a wreck,
They do what their political party tells to do and think,
We are merely numbers with a missing political link.
