“By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems.  And, by abortion, the father is told that he does not have any responsibility for the child he has brought into the world.  That father is likely to put other women into the same trouble.  So abortion leads to more abortion.  Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want.  This is why the greatest destroyer of love is abortion.”
–Mother Teresa of Calcutta, National Prayer Breakfast (February 3, 1994)


“All that is required for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing.”
–Edmund Burke


“I do not believe the promises of the Declaration of Independence are just for the strong, the independent, the healthy.  They are for everyone–including unborn children.  We are a society with enough compassion and wealth and love to care for both mothers and their children, to seek the promise and potential in every life.”
–Gov. George W. Bush, in a videotaped address to the National Right to Life Convention (June 1999)


“Any discrimination based on the various stages of life is no more justified than any other discrimination.  The right to life remains complete in an old person, even one greatly weakened; it is not lost by one who is incurably sick.  The right to life is no less to be respected in the small infant just born than in the mature person.  In reality, respect for human life is called for from the time that the process of generations begins.  From the time that the ovum is fertilized, a life is begun which is neither that of the father nor of the mother; it is rather the life of a new human being with his own growth.  It would never be made human if it were not human already.”
–Declaration on Procured Abortion


“If we take any living member of the species homo sapiens and put them outside the realm of legal protection, we undercut the case against discrimination for everyone else.  The basis for equal treatment under the law is that being a member of the species is sufficient to be a member of the human community, without consideration for race, gender, disability, age, stage of development, state of dependency, place of residence or amount of property ownership.  Abortion dynamites the foundation of feminism, and poisons the well against civil rights for African Americans, the elderly, the disabled, and others.”
–Feminists for Life


“No matter how it is worded or performed, abortion hurts women.  This won’t stop until women stand up in unison and say, ‘This is unacceptable.  We deserve better.’ Lack of emotional and financial resources are the real undue burden–and abortion will never lift that.”
–Serrin Foster, President, Feminists for Life of Americabortion


“The right to life is not a woman’s issue.  The Lord is the giver of life and only He can make choices about life.  It is always a reward to have life … only the Lord gives and takes life.” She characterized partial-birth abortion as “infanticide … total infanticide,” adding, “and it’s acceptable in Washington, D.C.”
–Margaret Heckler, former Secretary of Health, Welfare, and Education


“There is no more important issue than restoring the protection of the law to pre-natal infants.”
–Sen. Gordon Humphrey


“I didn’t want to be pro-life, but this is not a woman’s rights issue but a human rights issue.”–Kathy Ireland


“In this context the temptation grows to have recourse to euthanasia, that is, to take control of death and bring it before its time, ‘gently’ ending one’s own life or the life of others.  In reality, what might seem logical and humane, when looked at more closely is seen to be senseless and inhumane.  Here we are faced with one of the more alarming symptoms of the ‘culture of death’.”
–Pope John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae (The Gospel of Life)


“The public has a right to know whether abortion methods are being altered to obtain organs, whether live births sometimes occur during such procedures, and whether baby body parts are being sold for profit.”
–Douglas Johnson, Legislative Director of National Right to Life Committee


“Yet they [the American Cancer Society] refuse to list the Abortion/Breast Cancer risk, even though 13 of 14 studies in the USA revealed the risk and 25 of 31 studies worldwide.  Laboratory tests with rats also revealed the risk.  And yet, with this evidence, why is the ACS withholding this vital information?”
–Dr. Frank Joseph, MD


“The greatest destroyer of peace today is ABORTION … because it is war against child.” —Mother Teresa of Calcutta


“Even if you don’t share our faith, an atheist can know that it’s wrong to kill an innocent human life. That’s why I don’t mind ‘imposing’ this on other people.”–Kathy Ireland


“Fewer women would have abortions if wombs had windows.”
–Dr. Bernard Nathanson, former abortionist turned Pro-Life, in his 1979 book Aborting America


“Some people argue that changing laws will not eliminate abortions.  It is certainly true that a change of heart is more important than a change of law.  What is forgotten, however, is that the law is the great teacher.  Children grow up believing that if a practice is legal, it must be moral.”
–Cardinal John O’Connor


“More than four thousand innocent lives are taken each day in this land of the free and home of the brave, whose lady holds high the torch of welcome to human life.”
–John Powell, Abortion: the Silent Holocaust


“The old law permitted abortion to save one life when two would otherwise die.  The new law permits abortion to take one life when two would otherwise live.”
–Herbert Ratner, M.D.


“The real question today is not when human life begins, but what is the value of human life?”
–Pres. Ronald Reagan


“The method of killing a human child, one cannot even accurately say an entirely unborn human child, proscribed by this statute is so horrible that the most clinical description of it evokes a shudder of revulsion… the notion that the constitution of the United States, designed, among other things, ‘to establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, … and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity,’ prohibits the states from simply banning this visibly brutal means of eliminating our half-born posterity is quite simply absurd.”
–Justice Antonin Scalia, one of four members of the court who dissented in Stenberg v. Carhart, in his official written opinion


“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 contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or sovereign… you must weep that your own government, at present, seems blind to this truth.”
–Mother Teresa of Calcutta


“If life is not a continuum, from conception to natural death, then all of us are potential victims if we fall out of favor with a ruling elite.”
–Cal Thomas


“When life and family are not treasured and preserved in a society, collapse on all fronts is inevitable.”
–Fr. Richard Welch, CSSR, JCD, President of Human Life International


“When we die, we will come face to face with God, the Author of Life. Who will give an account to God for the millions and millions of babies who were not allowed a chance to live, to experience loving and being loved? –Mother Teresa of Calcutta


“While there are cases where even the law recognizes an abortion is justifiable if recommended by a physician, I assert that the hundreds of thousands of abortions performed in America each year are a disgrace to civilization.” —Margaret Sanger, Founder of Planned Parenthood
