Grassroots Initiative Calls for Clarification of Common Ground Through On-line Petition: Contraception, Root of Abortion

MEDIA ADVISORY, July 27 /Christian Newswire/ -- Founders of The Leaven call all people for the common good to sign an online petition stating that contraception is the root of abortion and that it is allegiance to natural and divine law written on the human heart regarding human sexuality that will protect not only the unborn, but ultimately the poor, the handicapped, the elderly, and the nation from anti-life ideologies.

Unwittingly or not, we betray these tiny children when we fail to adequately address this source of abortion which far outstrips the numbers of children dying by surgical abortion. True common ground demands that we commit or re-commit ourselves to the defense of human life by a more literal interpretation of what we are doing to the very least among us," says Juliana Davis.
