To be sure, there is a plethora of worthy pro-life organizations, people praying and working earnestly on behalf of the little innocent ones, and striving to uphold the inviolable sanctity of human life. Many of these efforts focus upon the government's involvement in the slaughter, seeking through legislative or judicial means to reverse this travesty and tyranny. But we know of no other collective, grassroots endeavor to simply turn off the faucet of government funding. This seems to be fundamental for two reasons: Firstly, the best way to get our government to stop funding abortion is to stop funding the government. Secondly, all our other pro-life prayers and efforts will be insincere and in vain as long as we are willingly paying for the slaughter via our taxes.
Ergo, ProLifeStrike.org was launched in January of 2009 for a dual purpose: 1) Convoke a tax strike with a view toward ending taxpayer-funded abortions, and 2) provide a place where tax strikers may meet to discuss principles, strategies, and concerns. That is, to begin to form a network, and to find strength and greater effectiveness in numbers and in our shared experiences.
This particular endeavor grew out of a series of "Dogpatch, Ergo Sum" blog posts written by Jerry DePyper, beginning in Feb. 2007 and through much of 2008. In turn, these writings had grown from a personal decision by Jerry several years prior to structure his life so as to eliminate or at least minimize his tax contribution to the abortion holocaust. Which is to say, he was on strike. But a one-man strike is pretty ineffective, so he wrote those blog posts, and finally launched this website, hoping to probe for some like-minded souls.
A like-minded soul of great significance has been David Little and his legal battle against tax-funded abortion in Canada. Although following different strategies, David and Jerry are of one mind when it comes to tax funded murder, and of the importance of a conscientious response, and the two men and their two sites have been closely related. A few other souls have signed on and/or have expressed encouragement, ideas, and support, including one who has recently begun to unveil in our new blog his vision of a very interesting approach to this matter.
Perhaps you who read this are already involved in your own tax resistance effort, or know someone who is. Perhaps you want to do something tangible like this. Those first few of you who join this effort and make it your own will be writing the rest of this "About" page, and will, Lord willing, help make this a movement worth noting.
To sign up for the strike, please use the form on the
Sign up page.
You may use that opportunity to speak out boldly, or you may join the strike more quietly, with nothing made public.
