Cheaper insurance for pro-lifers? (letter)

by Robert Bom

News Weekly, May 21, 2005

David Perrin writes that "our first task is to change the pro-abortion culture" (News Weekly, May 7, 2005).

To do this, we could utilise the significant market forces available to the pro-life groups.

A market approach would help not only in the abortion issue, but the whole scenario of "death culture" that now permeates the society.

We should ask insurance companies to recognise pro-lifers as a target market by developing policies and options attractive to them.

For instance, a pro-lifer does not need suicide cover in a life policy. A pro-life girl/woman taking out a disability, trauma or private health insurance policy does not need cover for abortions and the increased risks that stem from them.

Pro-lifers - as clients - reduce the health hazards and risk factor averages when actuaries calculate the premiums. This entitles them to be classified as a distinct category and they should be rewarded.

Politicians are much more likely to change laws if they can be persuaded by insurance companies' actions. And these companies will not act unless requested by market demand.

It is in this area that pro-life groups can assist.
