  • Difficult as it may be for a parent of a newborn, I propose that all babies that would have otherwise been aborted, be delivered to the door steps of the Supreme Court, or the Capitol building, or the steps to all churches that endorse the policy of forcing women to have unwanted children. Any child so delivered will become the care recipient of the institution where the child was delivered.

Any child recipient that refuses or simply does not provide the necessary child rearing services shall be summarily euthanized as an inhuman being. Case closed.
