If abortion isn't wrong, then what is?" - St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta.
St. Mother Teresa said this to the American Supreme Court -
"Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government," she said. "They are every human being's entitlement by virtue of his humanity. The
right to life does not depend, and must not be contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or sovereign. The Constitutional Court of
the Federal Republic of Germany recently ruled: 'The unborn child is entitled to its right to life independently of its acceptance by its mother;
this is an elementary and inalienable right which emanates from the dignity of the human being.'
St. Mother Teresa said this to the Cairo Conference -
"I have said often, and I am sure of it, that the greatest destroyer of peace in the world today is abortion. If a mother can kill her own child,
what is there to stop you and me from killing each other? The only one who has the right to take life is the One who has created it. Nobody else has
that right: not conference, no government."
And also this at that same Conference -
"If there is a child that you don't want or can't feed or educate, give that child to me. I will not refuse any child. I will give a home, or find
loving parents for him or for her. Weare fighting abortion by adoption and have given thousands of children to caring families. And it is so beautiful
to see the love and unity that a child brings to a family."
and St. Mother Teresa's words at the National Prayer Breakfast -
"By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems. And, by abortion, that father is told that he
does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. The father is likely to put other women into the same
trouble. So abortion just leads to more abortion. Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get
what they want. This is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion."
