Saint Teresa of Calcutta on Abortion

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

In honor of today's March for Life in Washington, DC, here are two quotations by St. Teresa of Calcutta on abortion and the sanctity of human life at every stage.

It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you live as you wish.
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.
— St. Teresa of Calcutta

Prayer for the Intercession of St. Teresa of Calcutta

Jesus, You made Saint Teresa an example of humility, charity and selflessness. She taught us that every human life has value and dignity. May we follow her in heeding Your cry of thirst from the Cross, and in loving the poorest of the poor. Grant us, by her intercession, and according to Your will, the graces we implore knowing that she is numbered among Your saints. We ask this in Your name, through the intercession of Mary, Your Mother and the Mother of us all. Amen.
