Mother Teresa, India
Mother Teresa tirelessly fought for the dignity of human life all around the world. Her work as a nun in Calcutta, India inspired the world to look with love upon all the suffering members of society. A woman of great compassion, Mother Teresa was not afraid to speak up against injustices.
She criticized the abortion policies of President Clinton and spoke directly to him at the National Prayer Breakfast in 1994. She said:
“But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself.
And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts…
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.”
