“Abortion has shown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father’s role in an increasingly fatherless society.”
“Abortion has portrayed the greatest of gifts, a child, as a competitor, an intrusion, and an inconvenience.
It has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the independent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters.
And in granting this unconscionable power,
it has exposed many women to unjust and
selfish demands from their husbands
or other sexual partners.
Human rights are not a privilege
conferred by government.
They are every human being’s entitlement
by virtue of his humanity.
The right to life
does not depend,
and must not be declared to be
contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else,
not even a parent or a sovereign.”
“Any country that accepts abortion is the poorest of the poor.”
MORE FROM ST MOTHER TERESA
“By abortion the Mother does not learn to love, but kills her own child to solve her problems. And, by abortion, that father is told that he does not have to take any responsibilty at all for the child he has brought into the world. The father is likely to put other women to the same trouble. So abortion leads to more abortion.”
“Once that living love is destroyed by contraception, abortion follows very easily.”
“Abortion kills twice. It kills the body of the baby and it kills the conscience of the mother. Abortion is profoundly anti-women. ”
“Loneliness and the feeling that nobody needs you is the worst kind of poverty.”
