Mother Teresa on Abortion

If we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to 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.[“Mother Teresa Has Anti-Abortion Answer,” Salt Lake Tribune, February 15, 1994, p. A–11]

In relation to orphan children:

These concerns are very good. But often these same people are not concerned with the millions who are being killed by the deliberate decision of their own mothers. And this is what is the greatest destroyer of peace today—abortion, which brings people to such blindness.

I am willing to accept any child who would be aborted and to give that child to a married couple who will love the child and be loved by the child”
