Famous Pro-Life Quotes
“What is taking place in America, is a war against the child. And if we accept that the mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?” Mother Teresa, February 1997 - National Prayer Breakfast in Washington attended by the President and the First Lady.
“All human life–from the moment of conception and through all subsequent stages–is sacred, because human life is created in the image and likeness of God. Nothing surpasses the greatness or dignity of a human person…If a person’s right to life is violated at the moment in which he is first conceived in his mother’s womb, an indirect blow is struck also at the whole moral order.” Pope John Paul II, in Washington, D.C., Oct. 7, 1979
“Children truly are the family’s greatest treasure and most precious good. Consequently, everyone must be helped to become aware of the intrinsic evil of the crime of abortion. In attacking human life in its very first stages, it is also an aggression against society itself. Politicians and legislators, therefore, as servants of the common good, are duty bound to defend the fundamental right to life, the fruit of God’s love.” Pope Benedict XVI, address in Latin America, Dec. 3, 2005
“We fed the public a line of deceit, dishonesty, a fabrication of statistics and figures. We succeeded because the time was right and the news media cooperated. We sensationalized the effects of illegal abortions, and fabricated polls which indicated that 85 percent of the public favored unrestricted abortion, when we knew it was only 5 percent. We unashamedly lied, and yet our statements were quoted [by the media] as though they had been written in Law.” Dr. Bernard Nathanson, Co-founder of NARAL; worked for the legalization of abortion in America; responsible for overseeing 75,000 abortions; convert to Catholicism; pro-life advocate; died on Feb. 21, 2011
“I am the woman once known as the Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade. But I dislike the name Jane Roe and all that it stands for. I am a real person named Norma McCorvey and I want you to know the horrible and evil things that Roe v. Wade did to me and others. I never got the opportunity to speak for myself in my own court case. I am not a trained spokesperson, nor a judge, but I am a real person – a living human being who was supposed to be helped by my lawyers and the courts in Roe v. Wade. But instead, I believe that I was used and abused by the court system in America. Instead of helping women in Roe v. Wade, I brought destruction to me and millions of women throughout the nation.” Norma McCorvey, June 23, 2005, in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee
“It represents a place women go and are left confused because they do not hear the truth about abortion and their choices. They are in a sense abused by the medical procedures that are performed without quality medical instructions/information. It’s a tragic place. “ Abby Johnson, former director of a Texas Planned Parenthood and convert to Catholicism, commenting on what the new “super sized” abortion clinic in Houston represents to her; National Review Online, “A Deadly Domino Effect”, Feb. 18, 2011
”I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion is already born.” Ronald Reagan
Psalm 139: 13-16: For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
