As today is the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, Cowboy Papist thinks it appropriate to share a few pro-life quotes that resonate truth, (thanks to Amy Smith at National Catholic Register). Amy also shares with me my hopeful view for the future.
This was exhibited as we had lunch with our son and daughter in law today, discussing Roe vs. Wade today and its future implications. As we discussed the depressing statistics, the policies and the practices surrounding abortion in America today, they became more repulsed than before. This is one reason for hope, as our next generations come to their senses and see the horrific consequences of their forefathers.
“The greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion, which is war against the child. The mother doesn’t learn to love, but kills to solve her own problems. Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want.” Blessed Mother Teresa
“Let me tell you why I believe abortion is the crucial issue of our age. First, because abortion, too, is about living within the truth. The right to life is the foundation of every other human right. If that right is not inviolate, then no right can be guaranteed. Or to put it more bluntly: Homicide is homicide, no matter how small the victim.” Archbishop Charles Chaput
“To be actively pro-life is to contribute to the renewal of society through the promotion of the common good.” Pope John Paul II
“Love of justice, the protection of life from conception to its natural end, respect for the dignity of every human being are to be upheld and witnessed, even against the current: The fundamental ethical values are the common patrimony of universal morality and the basis of democratic coexistence.” Pope Benedict XVI
“A person’s a person, no matter how small.” Dr. Seuss
The state of the unborn, is not what it should be – but it could.
