pro-life requires more
by Paul Glover
Those who believe that fertilized human eggs are the most sacred form of life are invited to sign the following pledge:
I will adopt a newborn unwanted child and will welcome it into my home to feed, clothe, shelter, heal, educate and love for at least 18 years. I will accept the same responsibilities for any unwanted children this child may bear, especially if I have taught the child the virtues of sexual abstinence without teaching birth control as well.
I will accept no government welfare help for raising these children.
I will also donate 10% of my remaining pay to orphanages, to help raise the unwanted children who are unwanted by other pro-lifers.
I will also bear no more than one child myself, so that I can afford to adopt and to donate.
I will also volunteer to pay higher taxes for extra prisons in which to cage the desperate unwanted youth born to mothers forced to bear them.
I will also support land reform and birth control education, especially in those countries where conception is murder because half the newborns die within two years, of malnutrition-related diseases. I will boycott Nestl? products because they sell a commercial breast milk "substitute" (prohibited in the U.S.) which has caused the deaths of millions of newborns in Third World countries (Action for Corporate Accountability (202) 776-0595).
also quit my bowling league, golf or bridge club, or other
hobby, so that I can give my extra time to one of the 50% of American
children now being raised without a father.
also quit eating meat, because 80% of the U.S. grain crop is fed
to cattle which excrete most of this food, thus causing millions of
Third World children to starve who could otherwise have had access to
this grain. An estimated five million fetuses are starving to
the womb today. An estimated 200 million children are
(World Food Congress, 1995).
