Mother Teresa on Abortion

"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 can accept that a mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?"
"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 responsibility 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."

"Any country that accepts abortion is the poorest of the poor"
"Many people are concerned with children of India, with the children of Africa where quite a few die of hunger, and so on. Many people are also concerned about the violence in this great country of the United States. These concerns are very good. But often these same people are not concerned with the millions being killed by the deliberate decision of their own mothers. And this is the greatest destroyer of peace today- abortion which brings people to such blindness."
"We must remember that life begins at home and we must also remember that the future of humanity passes through the family"
"It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you live as you wish"

It was so moving to watch the march for life last week on EWTN. Sooo many people participated in the march, yet mainstream tv failed to acknowledge it. To me, that is unbelievable.

I was so happy this week, we found out that my 13 year daughter won first place for a poster she designed that was made into a banner that was carried at the march. I have to say, at age 13 I did not even know what abortion was. I am trying so hard to make my children aware at an early age so there is no question in their minds that abortion is never an option for a mother. I think it is important for mothers to teach their children at an early age to take care of others. Life is so much more fulfilling when we take action to help our neighbors in need, including the unborn who have just as much of a right to life as we have.

I heard this past December of a church having a birthday party for Jesus, and everyone was suppose to bring diapers, baby cloths and other items that would be donated to a crisis pregnancy center. What an awesome idea!!

Let's pray for the unborn, and the mother's who are in crisis, and do whatever we can from where we are to help them.
