Atheist and Agnostic Pro-Life League Membership Form
To be eligible for AAPL membership, you must meet these three requirements:
Atheism is the absence of theism (belief in gods) and implies no other beliefs. An atheist is simply one who lacks belief in theism. Because any lack of theism is technically atheism, common usage necessitates the following definitions for the purposes of AAPL membership.2) oppose abortion and desire its abolition (with or without exceptions)
Every abortion involves the destruction of an innocent human being's life, so abortion should be used, if at all, only in extreme cases. At a minimum, abortion should never be used as a substitute for contraception or a fallback position for irresponsible behavior. Accordingly, abortions for "convenience" should be illegal.3) support nonviolence as the sole legitimate means of achieving the goals of the pro-life movement
Terrorism, murder, arson, and other horrific crimes are neither appropriate expressions of political protest nor effective means of political change. Anti-abortion extremist violence is the absolute negation of the work and goals of the pro-life movement. We oppose violence against all innocent human beings. We recognize the preborn child as an innocent human being deserving the protection that such status demands. We know that violence does nothing to secure the rights of the preborn. We reject violence as immoral and ineffectual.
If you meet the eligibility requirements and would like to join the Atheist and Agnostic Pro-Life League, please fill out this form ensuring that you answer all required questions -- Questions 1, 3, 5, 6a, and 6b if needed.
