Oh, the Humanity!


“I continue to be and will always be fully pro-choice but I no longer feel that I can or need to say that Im against abortion, thats not for me as a man to say.”

Justin Trudeau - LPC


"I am personally pro-life but I've also made the commitment that, as leader of this party, it is my responsibility to ensure that we do not re-open this debate."

Andrew Scheer - CPC


"A man has no place in a discussion of a woman's right to choose."

Jagmeet Singh- NDP


"I agree that abortions can be as long as 24, 25, 26 weeks because at that time, the fetus is not a child. But after [this period], its really a child."

Maxime Bernier - PPC


“Ive been a feminist all my life, or at least as long as Ive been conscious of being a woman … women must have access to legal, safe abortions, whenever a woman needs one.”

Elizabeth May - GPC


“God keep our land glorious and free! O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.”

Chorus of the National Anthem of Canada


“God keep our land”? Seriously?

with such as these at our head

“We stand on guard”? Honestly?

with such as we who follow


how well our most respected leaders

no more than pander to our whims

how easily it falls to we who follow

that they lead where we want to go


how can we claim glory and freedom

who deny our babes these very gifts

how futile we brag to stand on guard

who have no care to guard our own


how dare we ask God for blessing

who stand devoted to destruction

“LORD, have mercy!” our better plea

and fall no further than on His grace


Oh, the Humanity!
