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 I’m against abortion, that’s 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], it’s really a child."
Maxime Bernier - PPC
“I’ve been a feminist all my life, or at least as long as I’ve 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!
