Abortion Quotes

If we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people to not kill each other? Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want.

Mother Teresa

Abortion is inherently different from other medical procedures because no other procedure involves the purposeful termination of a potential life.

Potter Stewart

[T]he line between lawful and unlawful abortion will be marked by the fact of having sensation and being alive.

Aristotle

Abortion is the greatest deception that has plagued the black church since Lucifer himself.

Clenard Howard Childress, Jr.

If women must submit to abortion to preserve their lifestyle or career, their economic or social status they are pandering to a system devised and run by men for male convenience.

Daphne deJong

No one wants an abortion as she wants an ice cream cone or a Porsche. She wants an abortion as an animal, caught in a trap, wants to gnaw off its own leg.

Frederica Matthewes-Green

Abortion is the ultimate exploitation of women.

Alice Paul

I've noticed that everybody that is for abortion has already been born.

Ronald Reagan

I believe that life begins at conception. And abortion under no circumstances.

Herman Cain

If the anti-abortion movement took a tenth of the energy they put into noisy theatrics and devoted it to improving the lives of children who have been born into lives of poverty, violence, and neglect, they could make a world shine.

Michael Jay Tucker

No woman wants an abortion. Either she wants a child or she wishes to avoid pregnancy.

Unknown

If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.

Florynce R. Kennedy

Abolition of a woman's right to abortion, when and if she wants it, amounts to compulsory maternity: a form of rape by the State.

Edward Abbey

George W. Bush will protect your unborn fetus, then send your grown child to die in war.

Rick Claro

Abortion is advocated only by persons who have themselves been born.

Ronald Reagan

The product, abortion, is skillfully marketed and sold to the woman at the crisis time in her life. She buys the product, finds it defective and wants to return it for a refund. But, it's too late.

Carol Everett

The cruel irony is that abortion has been presented as something that would set a woman free. This brings to mind the gypsy in Verdi's opera Il Trovatore. Outraged by the count's cruel injustice, she stole his infant son and, in a crazed act of vengeance, flung him into the fire. Or so she thought. For, in turning around, she discovered the count's son lay safe on the ground behind her; it was her own son she had thrown into the flames. Abortion can present itself as glittering liberty, a defiant way to cast off the shackles of injustice. That illusion lasts only until you realize who it was that you threw into the flames. So the second point to make when trying to persuade is that abortion hurts women; it does not deliver on its promise to liberate them.

Frederica Matthewes-Green

One of the most basic problems with abortion is this, you give the women a voice, but where's the man's voice?

Tim Peterson

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

Mother Teresa

No woman can call herself free who does not control her own body.

Margaret Sanger

I think we have deluded ourselves into believing that people don't know that abortion is killing. So any pretense that abortion is not killing is a signal of our ambivalence, a signal that we cannot say yes, it kills a fetus.

Faye Wattleton

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? ... By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems. And, by abortion, that father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. The 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 its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. This is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

I do not think abortion should be legal in this country. Abortion should not be legal. That is clear. But if a family made the decision to break the law, that's that family's decision.

Herman Cain

Abortions will not let you forget.You remember the children you got that you did not get,The damp small pulps with a little or with no hair,The singers and workers that never handled the air.You will never neglect or beatThem, or silence or buy with a sweet.You will never wind up the sucking-thumbOr scuttle off ghosts that come.

Gwendolyn Brooks
