Fresh Thinking On Reducing Abortions
As right-to-life advocates, our biggest oversight may have been that we focus on the unborn while leaving abuses of the born out of the equation.
The truth of the matter is that the state or status of the unborn child is linked to the state or status of the born child. Because the unborn child is devalued, the born child is also devalued (as evidenced by over 50 percent of kids born outside marriage; we don't think enough of them to make them legitimate; as evidenced by the child sex slave trade in the U.S.; as evidenced by child protection agencies every state has had to create to address parental neglect and abuse of children; etc.).
Thus where society moves to remove abuses or to give more value to the child that is born, it automatically gives more value to the unborn. Parents engaged in a real love relationship with each other--i.e., who highly value one another--highly value their children and, therefore, never abort or abuse them. Teaching about basic social rights and the three pillars of love is the most natural way to end or radically reduce elective abortions.
of Basic Social Rights of the Family
There are 7 basic social rights of the family. Social conservatives have always defended them. They are social rights, not legal rights. Therefore BBF does not seek for the federal government to enforce them, for they are not enforceable in any event. We simply seek for Congress to recognize them for what they are, basic social rights, which every person has a primordial right to. This will help more of the public to take these rights seriously and lead to sound public policy that protects them.
What is most important to take away from all this is the understanding that once the basic social rights of the family become recognized by our nation, issues such as abortion, gay marriage and the high divorce rate will begin to fade away automatically. And all of our nation's social epidemics such as child abuse, the child sex slave trade, domestic violence, gang activity, illicit drug use, the education crisis, teen pregnancy, street crime, soaring high school dropout rates, etc. will start to heal. They may not go away completely but they will cease to be epidemics. Government will become far less expensive to operate, thus lowering the need for high taxes.

Welcome to the
Bill of Basic Social Rights of the Family
The Three Pillars of Love
The Three Pillars of Love
ALL divorces and ALL domestic violence happen for one reason; people are not learning how to have a real love relationship before entering a relationships or marriages.
This is where the three pillars of love come in. They are not new. They have been around since Adam and Eve when God created the institution of love and marriage (Gen. 2:24), our first institution. They are the three promises that make up traditional marriage vows, which are necessary to sustain a real love relationship. It has become necessary to put them in print for display and education because our society has largely lost focus of what real love between the male and female consists of. It is the love relationship between the male and female, not the marriage, per se, that forms the foundation for family. And children have a genetic need to enjoy and be part of the love relationship between their parents.
The three pillars of love are the natural and necessary compliment to the basic social rights of the family. Marriage, which cannot properly function without the three pillars , is simply the result of the love relationship. Young people cannot know how to properly relate to the opposite sex without knowing how to apply the three pillars of love.
All male/female domestic violence, all divorces, and virtually all child abuse and neglect are the result of two people failing to adhere to the three pillars of love.

To Maximize Healthy, Traditional Two-Parent
Families, Congress Must "Recognize" the
Bill of Basic Social Rights of the Family.
Culture of Child Neglect and Abuse
This Historic Legislation Is the
First of Its Kind In Human History.
Will the Bill of Basic Social Rights of the Family eventu-
ally be the cornerstone of world social policy?
Break down of the traditional two-parent family is the root cause of every social epidemic plaguing Amer- ica, thereby increasing the cost of federal, state and local government by 35 to 50 percent. Affirmative refocus on the two-parent family by "recognition" of the Bill of Basic Social Rights of the Family is the only way to slash taxes to where they are supposed to be.
To learn about social rights,
BasicBirthright Foundation Is
Lobbying Congress to "Recognize" the
Bill of Basic Social Rights of the Family.
This is an educational website. The BasicBirthright Foundation reaches out to help society better understand how break down of the traditional two-parent family has created a culture of abuse of children and adults in America, while greatly increasing the cost of federal, state and local government. Millions are affected. It is way past time to put the traditional two-parent family issue back on the table. For a scope of the size of the problem, we offer the following Quick View of data points:
When the male and female place great value
on each other through "real love," they place great value on their children, and therefore, child neglect and abortion does not enter the picture.
Forty-five percent of American kids are born outside marriage (75 percent of African-American children). Half of kids in marriages experience divorce. This is due to widespread failure of the male and female to learn how to have a real love relationship, i.e., to uphold the three pillars of love (click here).

How to Overcome
the Reluctance to Help
Seeks Two Kinds of
How Many Americans Will It Take to Turn Things Around?
The reason America's pathological social epi- demics keep growing is that too few citizens understand that it is the duty of every adult to get involved in making these epidemics go away. Government alone cannot properly ad- dress these matters, which cause taxes to be unnecessarily high. There must be "people in- volvement" from every citizen because it is a matter of "values" as Bill O'Reilly continues to stress.
Nearly every American is able to give to a good cause, even if it's only a quarter or 50 cents. If you believe the Bill of Basic Social Rights of the Family is the right path for America, but hesitate help, it is probably for some of the following reasons:
1. You are not accustomed to volunteering or giving to nonprofits.
2. You are accustomed to trying to keep as much of your money as possible.
3. You do not fully understand your duty to help eliminate America's pathological social epidemics and refocus our country on the traditional two-parent family.
Regarding Reason #1, the overwhelming majority of Americans simply are not accustomed to volunteering or giving to nonprofits. It is therefore understandable that the idea of helping may be foreign to most of us. Regarding Reason #2, we are all accustomed to trying to hang on to our money. Most of us work hard for it, and so it can be hard to let it go.
But what if you know in your heart that you should be involved in helping a cause like this one? Should you pass up a grand opportunity to help your country? Of course not! Your country needs you!
Regarding Reason #3, most Americans simply have not thought through their duty to help their country deal with the many social diseases that plague our nation, and cause taxes to be so high. We tend to leave social epidemics for government to solve. But government has thrown trillions of dollars at these problems since the 1970s and each epidemic continues to grow. It is way past time to change course.
The simple truth is that government alone cannot rid our nation of its social epidemics because the root cause of each epidemic is the break down of the traditional two-parent family. Only the American people can resolve that issue. The sole proper role for government is to give sovereignty to the basic social rights of the family (thereby establishing them as social policy and increasing awareness) and then let the American people do the rest.
Becoming A Hero Made Easy
Those who give to important causes like this one are without a doubt heroes. If organizations like the Family Research Council and the AAF did not exist, government would have to be called on to do all the more. The only way to make government small and keep it small is to establish a "culture of involvement" that includes every adult citizen.
If you are not accustomed to helping a nonprofit that addresses social problems, but you understand your need to do so, the easiest way to start is by taking baby steps. Helping nonprofits involves two things, the giving of time, and the giving of money. Time is usually the least that people can afford to give. Unless disabled or retired, most of the middle class must work for a living and care for family, which often limits or eliminates the time they are able to volunteer for good causes. If you would like to offer time to an organization but are new to volunteer work, the best place to begin is by volunteering a few hours every other week or so until you feel comfortable with making the sacrifice. You can increase your time for volunteering as you become more comfortable.
Like "time", the best way to start giving money is through baby steps. You can launch your experience into donating by first offering a tiny portion of your disposable income, say, 50 cents or a dollar a week. Put it into a bank account and then when you are ready to donate, withdraw it. As you become used to saving money for nonprofit causes, you can increase the amount as you become more comfortable with giving.
AAF recommends that every American maintain a bank account for this purpose. In fact, if every American maintained $50 a year in such an account (disposable income only), there would be about $9,000,000,000 a year available for nonprofit causes.
The Bill of Basic Social Rights of the Family cannot be success- ful in Congress without two types of assistance from citizens. First, we need folks to write letters to their respective U.S. Senator and Congressperson requesting that they get involved with passing the Bill (click "Sample Congressional Letters" below). If you decide to help in this regard, please consider mailing a copy of each Congressional Letter to AAF so that we may track statistics. (Click here for AAF address.) Second, we need donations. Would you be willing to donate at least $50 a year to help get the Bill through Congress? (Click here to donate.) You may also consider buying framed prints of the Bill of Basic Social Rights of the Family and the Three Pillars of Love (see below).
Social Conservatism Falters Due to Inadequate
Defense of Traditional Two-Parent Family
No part of the destructive aspects of the liberal agenda could have advanced without largely dismantling the two-parent family. While social conservatives have long championed the family, we have failed to see that the legislative process must be utilized to back the most basic social rights of the family. Congressional "recognition" of the Bill of Basic Social Rights of the Family is the only legislation to adequately defend the traditional two-parent family.
The mission at BasicBirthright Foundation is to end the regression and needless suffering of American children and adults by promoting legislation that defends the basic social rights of the family. To that end, BBF is moving the U.S. government to "recognize" the Bill of Basic Social Rights of the Family, those inalienable rights every human being has a fundamental right to.
Another part of our mission involves pushing for other simple, common sense laws that strengthen family values. For example, BBF is lobbying the Kentucky state legislature to pass a law that directs public and private schools to mail the report card of each student to his or her parent that is separated from the student, whether the parent lives across the city or across the country. The law is called Report Card Law for Family Cohesion. Such a law would serve to preserve family connections that otherwise are broken. The simple gesture of seeing that the estranged parent receives report cards of his offspring would go far to encourage his financial and social responsibilities toward the child, and thereby dramatically reduce the state's involvement in collecting child sup-
port. See MENU below for a full dis- cussion on this subject.
To fund its mission, AAF accepts donations and sells framed prints of the Bill of Basic Social Rights of the Family, the Legislative Text w/House Members and The Three Pillars of Love. The Legislative Text print commemorates the thirty House Representatives to whom the Bill was initially submitted for congressional consideration. Of course, these framed prints make great gifts. To purchase, see MENU below or Red Buttons to the right. For donations please click DONATIONS page for options.
Pushing Congress to Act
The Bill of Basic Social Rights of the Family has been submitted to thirty members of the House of Represen- tatives for legislation that would have it recognized by the United States government. It is only a matter of time for the legislation to pass, as early ex- posure to citizens shows there would be overwhelming support for the initiative in the community, particularly among African-Americans, moderate liberals and social conservatives. Virtually all in these groups seem to understand that affirmative defense of the basic social rights of the family is the only key to ridding America of its multitude of social epidemics. There seems to be a powerful grassroots bipartisan spirit around this simple measure that is motivated by the desire to end the hardships for multitudes who suffer as a result of the breakdown of the traditional two-parent family.
Meanwhile, BBF has aligned with two distinguished lobbying firms to push Congress harder for recognition of the Bill as soon as it reaches the mainstream of the American public.
