Once you have considered your family and friends, please consider leaving a life-saving gift to the ProLife Alliance. You can leave a specific sum of money or an item, such as jewellery or a piece of art. You can also leave a share in, or what’s left of the value of, your estate after all bills have been paid.
If you already have a will, it’s easy to include a gift to the ProLife Alliance. You won’t need to re-write your will: a qualified solicitor can draft an amendment (called a codicil) for a minimal cost. Here is a suggested form of words:
‘I give the residuary of my estate to the ProLife Alliance, PO Box 13395, London, SW3 6ZJ (registered company no. 5757447), for its general purposes. I further direct that the receipt of one of the company’s directors of other proper officers of the said company for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said gift’.
Don’t forget, either, that, if you have no surviving relatives and die without a will, your estate would pass to the state – which might use it, directly or indirectly, to fund abortions or embryonic stem-cell research.
