Oh, why this carnage, lord and king?
Oh, spare our sons we plead.

Mary E. Fullerton============
War - red and bloody war - will not have the toll
so much desired by it, for women will increasingly
refuse to give life that men may take it.
The prostitution of the brain of man in making all
science but a means of dealing death in more
horrible forms will not be followed by the
prostitution of women in giving life to a child that
it may grow to manhood but to murder his fellow
Woman Voter 24 February 1916 State Library of Victoria
