I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child . . . a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself. And if we can accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love. And we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts.
—Teresa of Calcutta
