These comments are from the tiny dynamo who, by submitting herself to God's Will, became a mighty instrument for Jesus to change the attitudes toward the unwanted in Calcutta. She was up close and personal with poverty, disease, and death. Here is Blessed Mother Teresa's take on abortion. She knows whereof she speaks:
These concerns (for orphan children in India and elsewhere in the world) are very good, but often these same people are not concerned with the millions that are killed by the deliberate decision of their own mothers. And this is what is the greatest destroyer of peace today, Abortion...For the pregnant women who don't want their children, give them to me.
If we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people to not kill each other? Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want.
The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.
It is poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.
Smile at each other, smile at your wife, smile at your husband, smile at your children, smile at each other -- it doesn't matter who it is -- and that will help you to grow up in greater love for each other.
