Mother and Baby

Quotations from Mother Teresa
regarding the killing of the unborn

  • "Life is a gift that God has given us.  That life is present even in the unborn.  A human hand should never end a life.  I am convinced that the screams of the children whose lives have been terminated before their birth reach God's ears."

  • "I am sure that all people know deep down inside that the little child in the mother's womb is a human being from the moment of conception, created in the image of God to love and be loved. Let us pray that nobody will be afraid to protect that little child, to help that little child to be born. Jesus said: 'If you receive a little child in my name, you receive me.' "

  • "For me, life is the most beautiful gift of God to mankind, therefore people and nations who destroy life by abortion and euthanasia are the poorest. I do not say legal or illegal, but I think that no human hand should be raised to kill life, since life is God's life in us, even in an unborn child."

  • "Please don't kill the child. I want the child. I am willing to accept any child who would be aborted and give him or her to a married couple who will love the child and be loved by the child. At our children's home in Calcutta alone, we have saved over 3,000 children from abortion. These children have brought so much love and joy to their adoptive parents and have grown up so full of love and joy."

  • "By abortion, the mother kills even her own child to solve her problems. And, by abortion, the father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all 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 abortion. Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love but to use violence to get what they want. This is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion."

  • "Unborn children are among the poorest of the poor.  They are so close to God.  I always ask doctors at hospitals in India never to kill an unborn child.  If there is no one who wants it, I will take it."

  • "A great poverty reigns in a country that allows taking the life of an unborn child--a child created in God's image, created to live and to love.  His or her life is not for destroying but for living, despite the selfishness of those who fear that they lack the means to feed or educate one more child."

  • "I see God in the eyes of every child--every unwanted child is welcomed by us.  We then find homes for these children through adoption."  

  • "You know, people worry all the time about innocent children being killed in wars, and they try to prevent this.  But what hope is there is stopping it if mothers kill their own children?  Every life is precious to God, whatever the circumstances.  In Isaiah, chapter 43, verse 4, God says, 'You are precious to me and I love you'."

  • "We must not be surprised when we hear of murders, of killings, of wars, of hatred. If a mother can kill her own child, what is left but for us to kill each other. "
