And so, on this forty-fifth anniversary of Roe v. Wade, let us respond to Roe as Frederick Douglass responded to a similar indignity, Dred Scott v. Sandford.
“Happily for the whole human family,” Douglass thundered, “their rights have been defined, declared, and decided in a court higher than the Supreme Court.”
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”
This should be repulsive to any moral person.
