The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - You have no right to die
You have no right to die
Your Charter right to life, doesnít mean you have a right to die,
Euthanasia is illegal in this country and you donít know why,
Various activists want it to stay this way and never change,
Not allowed to alter the system, change the laws or rearrange.
It doesnít matter if you are due to die next year in great pain,
Euthanasia is not their game or on any political campaign,
As they claim the laws protect the vulnerable and the weak,
So stand down, wait quietly for your painful death and be meek.
Though we have abortion clinics with little opposition,
Backed by Supreme Court appointees and feminist ambition,
As the public is spoon fed media opinions and bias,
As they pretend that they are normal, religious and pious.
They claim itís not a health care issue but say itís life and death,
The same crowd that have no worries about unborn fetusí first breath,
Many other changes should be coming at the very least,
Itís not over when the fetus is dead and those in pain canít be deceased.
