Wrong Words, Right Idea

Perhaps I'm incorrect and the following is a proper usage of zero.  Regardless of the grammar, many of these ideas are spot on. 

"Tort Reform is ZERO (but it should be) about:·
Reforming the use of medical birth practices and interventions known to harm babies that lead to increasing litigation and therefore, increasing malpractice rates.
Tort Reform is ZERO (but it should be) about:·
Creating a social consciousness for reproductive responsibility for conceiving a child who is wanted by adults who can physically, emotionally, financially, and spiritually care for him or her.
Tort Reform is ZERO (but it should be) about:·
the disproportionate liability placed on physicians by society and the legal system, rather than men and women being responsible for reproductive and birth choices and experiences
Tort Reform is ZERO (but it should be) about:·
Stopping the medical practices known in the medical literature to be extremely damaging to women and babies; and therefore, are contributors to long-term physical, emotional, and spiritual issues in society.
Tort Reform is ZERO (but it should be) about:·
Consistent policy and practice safety protocols established, including political and social will to give women power over their bodies and choices so that women, not physicians, are responsible for their baby’s birth outcome.
Tort Reform is ZERO (but it should be) about:·
Men claiming their rightful place as protector of their wife and baby and realizing their own disempowerment in the medical system
Tort Reform is ZERO (but it should be) about:·
The BABY!"
