Quotes of the week


YOU WERE MADE FOR GREATNESS SET YOUR POLITICS ASIDE

Via via I was made aware of the you tube videos of Gianna Jessen, Abortion Survivor. I think when it comes to the pro-life debate and any debate about abortion, this must be one of the most powerful speeches I have ever seen. So I posted part I and part II here.

and part II

And to complement this some remarkable remarks by Mother Theresa on the very subject matter:

“But I feel that 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 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 … See Morealways, we must persuade her with love, and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts. Jesus gave even his life to love us. So the mother who is thinking of abortion, should be helped to love – that is, to give until it hurts her plans, or her free time, to respect the life of her child. The father of that child, whoever he is, must also give until it hurts. By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but 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 just leads to more abortion. Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching the people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. That is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion. ”

“It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.”

Think again after watching these videos about where you stand when it comes to abortion.

Abortion, a perfect example of the disconnection between knowledge and meaning and the self-centered nature of mankind.
