Do Both of Your Parents Smoke? “For both man and wife to be addicts to smoke inhalation is destructive of everything that is good. Children born to such a pair had better never have been born.” Heber J. Grant, Conference Report, Oct. 1934
Have You Lost Your Membership? “…the killing of a million in a great world war would be nothing compared to your losing your membership, your priesthood, your blessings.

Kimball, p. 502
Are You Suicidal? “Suicide may solve his problem so far as this life is concerned, but what about eternity? If we so much dread the pitiful, lingering, unhappy death of the body, what would it be like to endure eternal death in one’s own soul? Of those who sin unto death the Lord has said, . . . it had been better for them never to have been born;” Sterling W. Sill, Conference Report, April 1965
Have You Ever Rebelled? “Those who fight the truth and come out in open rebellion against God, however, would have remained better off had they never been born.” Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, p .85
Are You Male and Have a Parent Named “Perdition”? “They are they who are the sons of perdition, of whom I say that it had been better for them never to have been born;” God, D&C 76:32
