Voice for the Voiceless II


"The esteem in which we
hold unborn baby eagles is
remarkable. The protection
which the law affords them is
noble and inspiring. If only
unborn human babies had
feathers. Perhaps we would
not kill them." -- William
Kevin Stoos

" ... this term-"pro-choice"-is absolutely, positively meaningless when it's used in isolation
(as it normally is!). First and foremost, the quality of a choice is determined by the goodness
or badness of the object chosen. When the choice, for example, is to lie or cheat or steal or
fornicate or kill babies in the womb, then to be pro-choice is actually to be pro-evil, because
the object being chosen is evil. The only time it's acceptable to be "pro-choice," is when the
object of the choice happens to be good: the choice to love, the choice to forgive, the choice
to respect human life from natural conception to natural death." -- Fr. Ray Suriani

"What struck me was that at the very time I am writing this, unborn children are having their
lives snuffed out in the womb. And what struck me next was the general lack of urgency
about the slaughter of the unborn among many of us who acknowledge the Church's teaching.
I include myself in this category: I could be doing much more than I am now. I haven't
been out to the abortuaries with other pro-lifers to say the rosary on Saturday morning in
years. I give money to various pro-life organizations (and I could do more of that), but not a
lot of time. ... Has the death of those unborn children become a mere abstraction to me? Is
that what it is to those who also in some way acknowledge the Church's teaching, but
nevertheless find some rationale for making it OK to support politicians who embrace that
slaughter?" -- Fr. Rob Johansen

"We cannot grow accustomed to the culture of death in our society any more than we could
grow accustomed to racial discrimination in our society. We cannot wearily sigh and
lament the evil of abortion. We must energetically and publicly oppose abortion. We must
ardently pray and sacrifice for the conversion of our culture to a culture of life. Like John
the Baptist, we must leap at the opportunity to point out the presence of Christ in the unborn,
the sick, the elderly, the
disabled, and all those who
are vulnerable and subject to
being marginalized." --
Denise Hunnell, author of
Catholic Matriarch In My
Domestic Church aka
Catholic Mom, summarizing
a sermon she heard on the
Anniversary of Roe v. Wade

It is a poverty to decide that a


child must die so that you
may live as you wish.
Mother Teresa

"The extermination of
millions of unborn children,
in the name of the fight
against poverty, actually constitutes the destruction of the poorest of all human beings."
~ Pope Benedict XVI, Message for the World Day of Peace, 12/11/08

Our goal is to make it as safe, legal, and normal to protect the innocent from murder as it is
now safe, legal and normal to kill them. Tina Mahar

"If the Unborn is not a human being, then no justification for abortion is necessary. However,
if the unborn IS a human being, then no justification for abortion is adequate." - Gregory
Koukl

"In the spiritual battle to protect life, one must strive to be in the state of grace. This means
entreating the Holy Sanctifier to purify us from being self-willed, self-centered and self-
opinionated. It means beseeching the Holy Comforter to inspire us to find decisive ways to
deliver the helpless children from abortion and rescue the targeted victims of euthanasia,
giving us an appreciation and understanding of their suffering and humiliation. It means
calling on the Sancte Spiritus to enlighten, enkindle and inflame us with His fire of love so
we can undertake with courage and strength His battle plans to overcome all obstacles: ( i.e.
Planned Parenthood, opposition, pro-abortionists); and contradictions: (false compassion,
mercy killing). It means begging the Holy Ghost to give us the wisdom to guide others, to
free them from fear of peers so they can stand up for the helpless; to free them from false
bonding that keeps them from following Our Lady of Guadalupe in her victory march; free
from unjust paralyzing laws that prevents them from defending their pre-born brothers and
sisters, united with St. Joseph, our guardian angels and the mighty army of angels led by the
Archangels, St. Michael (Defender), St. Gabriel (Messenger) and St. Raphael (Healer)."
- Fr. Jim Whalen
"Don't force your beliefs on me!" -- Unborn Baby

"Have no fear. The outcome of the battle for life is already decided, even though the struggle
goes on against great odds and with much suffering." ++ Pope John Paul II

"Choosing life may not be the easiest path, but it's always the right path." -- Sarah Palin
If abortion isn't fundamentally different than other surgeries, like root canals and
tonsillectomies, why are there so many post abortion support groups and hundreds of
thousands of women getting psychological counselling and grief therapy related to their
abortions? Do you know of any post-root canal counselling and support groups?"
-- Randy Alcorn

"Abortion is our problem, and the problem of every human being. We are one human family.
Nobody can be neutral on abortion. It involves the destruction of an entire group of human
beings! Just as we cannot be indifferent to the killing of a new born baby, so we cannot be
indifferent to the killing of a preborn baby. We all share the responsibility for people who are
in danger. Injustice to any person in this world is injustice to every person!"
++ Fr. Frank Pavone

"Abortion is a murder in the womb... A child is a gift of God. If you do not want him, give
him to me." -- Mother Theresa

"The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what
is left for me to kill you and you to
kill me? There is nothing between."
-- Mother Theresa
"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."
~ Most Reverend Charles Chaput,
Archbishop of Denver, CO, Living
within the truth: Religious liberty
and Catholic mission in the new
order of the world, August 24, 2010
~
It is our job to change the hearts and minds of our fellow countrymen. It is our job to share
what we know about the inestimable value of human life with everyone we meet. Most of the
time our commitment will be seen in our everyday actions - the way we treat other people,
the way we talk about children, the handicapped and the elderly. Sometimes we will be called
upon to defend our beliefs in conversations, in emails, in the classroom. Renew your
commitment to stop abortion. Go to an abortion clinic this week, maybe even yet today." --
Ann Scheidler

"The deep misunderstanding of human sexuality that pervades our culture laid the foundation
not only for my own pro-choice views but for the abortion movement as a whole. My own
conversion on the issue is illustrative of what must happen in our culture as a whole in order
to turn the tide for life: If our society is ever to respect the unborn, we must first respect and
fully understand the nature of the act that creates those unborn lives in the first place. As
long as the connection between sexual activity and its life-giving potential is severed, the
temptation to devalue human life will win out." -- Jennifer Fulwiler

"We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution. Each of us is the result of a
thought of God. Each of us is willed, each of us is loved, each of us is necessary." Pope
Benedict XVI

"If we truly believe that abortion is the intentional execution of helpless children, we must
also acknowledge that any politician who is pro-choice is not morally qualified to be
dogcatcher." ---Mark Crutcher

"As the populations of the Western world age, we will see that the generation of parents that
aborted their own children, will be euthanized by the children who survived... We need to
raise the volume in announcing the Gospel of Life. It must not be a strident and hateful
scream but a courageous proclamation of the Gospel of Life by witnesses whose lives are
transformed by faith, love and a desire to serve."- Cardinal Seán Patrick O'Malley, O.F.M.
Cap.

"In the druidical religion of


liberalism, not separating your
recyclables is a sin, but
abortion is just a medical
procedure."- Ann Coulter

"Joy is a net of love by which


we can catch souls" Mother
Theresa
"No one who looks
realistically at our world today
could think that Christians can afford to go on with business as usual…. Each of us has a
mission, each of us is called to change the world, to work for a culture of life, a culture forged
by love and respect for the dignity of each human person." ++ Pope Benedict XVI

To a great extent the level of any civilization


is the level of its womanhood. When a man
loves a woman, he has to become worthy of
her. The higher her virtue, the more her
character, the more devoted she is to truth,
justice, goodness, the more a man has to
aspire to be worthy of her. The history of
civilization could actually be written in
terms of the level of its women.---
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

"I would like to say a special word to


women who have had an abortion. The
Church is aware of the many factors which
may have influenced your decision, and she
does not doubt that in many cases it was a
painful and even shattering decision. The
wound in your heart may not yet have
healed. Certainly what happened was and
remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather
to understand what happened and face it honestly.
If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance.
The Father of mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace in the Sacrament of
Reconciliation. You will come to understand that nothing is definitely lost and you will also
be able to ask forgiveness from your child, who is now living in the Lord.
With the friendly and expert help and advice of other people, and as a result of your own
painful experience, you can be among the most eloquent defenders of everyone's right to life.
Through your commitment to life, whether by accepting the birth of other children or by
welcoming and caring for those most in need of someone to be close to them, you will
become promoters of a new way of looking at human life."
-- Pope John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae (The Gospel of Life) 1995, #99

"We always must remember that when a difficult medical situation involves a pregnant
woman, there are two patients in need of treatment and care; not merely one. The unborn
child's life is just as sacred as the mother's life, and neither life can be preferred over the
other. A woman is rightly called 'mother' upon the moment of conception and throughout her
entire pregnancy is considered to be 'with child.'"
~ Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted, Statement of the Diocese of Phoenix Re: Situation at St.
Joseph's Hospital, May 14, 2010 ~
"I express my deep appreciation for all those
social and pastoral initiatives aimed at
combating the socio-economic and cultural
mechanisms which lead to abortion, and
openly concerned with defending life and
promoting the reconciliation and healing of
those harmed by the tragedy of abortion.
Initiatives aimed at protecting the essential
and primary values of life from its
conception, and of the family based on
indissoluble marriage between a man and a
woman, help to respond to some of today's
most insidious and dangerous threats to the
common good. Such initiatives represent,
along with many other forms of
commitment, essential elements in the
building of the civilization of love".
~ Pope Benedict XVI, Charity is Principal
Strength and Guide of the Church, Fatima,
Portugal, May 13, 2010 ~

"I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion is already born." - Ronald Reagan

"Simple morality dictates that unless and until someone can prove the unborn human is not
alive, we must give it the benefit of the doubt and assume it is (alive). And, thus, it should be
entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." - Ronald Reagan 1982

Every life matters. Every life lived well, no matter how anonymous, has an impact for all
eternity. Heaven is filled with "ordinary" people who became saints by living their daily
responsibilities with extraordinary love and extraordinary devotion to Jesus Christ. Their
example led others to God. And we can do the same.--Archbishop Chaput

"There is no single thing that converts more people to the pro-life position than the photos of
what abortion looks like." - Fr. Frank Pavone

"No human activity glorifies Satan and his minions more than abortion."-- Fr. Thomas J.
Euteneuer

May I share His suffering and
offer myself today, that hearts
of stone may be converted.
I join my prayer with all those
who are also offering

Amen.
Rev. James Kubicki, SJ

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... - Mother Teresa

We must not be surprised when we hear of murders, killings, of wars, or of hatred...If a


mother can kill her own child, what is left but for us to kill each other? - Mother Teresa

"We fed the public a line of deceit, dishonesty, a fabrication of statistics and figures. We
succeeded because the time was right and the news media cooperated. We sensationalized the
effects of illegal abortions, and fabricated polls which indicated that 85 percent of the public
favoured unrestricted abortion, when we knew it was only 5 percent. We unashamedly lied,
and yet our statements were quoted [by the media] as though they had been written in law." -
Dr. Bernard Nathanson, Co-founder of National Assn. for Repeal of Abortion Laws, now
called National Abortion Reproductive Rights Action League. Today, Dr. Nathanson is a pro-
life author and activist.

To say a child is unwanted says nothing about the child, but it says much about the person
who does not want his or her child... - Jean Staker Garton, co-founder and president of the
national organization Lutherans for Life

"I was once pro-choice and the thing that changed my mind was, I read my husband's biology
books, medical books, and what I learned . . . At the moment of conception, a life starts. And
this life has its own unique set of DNA, which contains a blueprint for the whole genetic
make-up. The sex is determined. We know there is a life because it is growing and changing."
--Kathy Ireland, supermodel, appearing on the television show Politically Incorrect, 5/1/1998

"Abortion is genocide. It's killing populations. It's killing generations and certainly the
population that is most impacted by abortion in America is the black community. So I feel
that as a civil rights leader I have
responsibility to proclaim that black
Americans are being exterminated by
the genocidal acts of abortion." -- Dr.
Alveda King

"There is a terrible sickness in a world


that uses self importance to excuse the
murder of a child." -- Youth Defence

"...we will stand up every time that


human life is threatened. When the
sacredness of life before birth is
attacked, we will stand up and proclaim
that no one ever has the authority to
destroy unborn life. When a child is described as a burden or is looked upon only as a means
to satisfy an emotional need, we will stand up and insist that every child is a unique and
unrepeatable gift of God, with the right to a loving and united family..." ~ Pope John Paul II,
Homily at the Holy Mass at the Capital Mall, October 7, 1979 ~

Now there are those who would patrol life, not after it becomes a harvest but while it is seed
in the granary. The new kind of vigilance would not wait until the fruit appeared on the tree,
as did Hitler and others, but would stifle the blossoms and the buds. They would take up their
watch at the borderline of love and life and say, "They shall not pass." ~ On Being Human,
by Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, Ph.D., D.D. ~

"...is it surprising that today we have become so morally blind (for wickedness blinds) that
we save the baby whales at great cost, and murder millions of unborn children?"
~ Alice von Hildebrand, The Privilege of Being a Woman, p.24

Abortion is the most selfish and abhorrent crime committed by man for two reasons: (1) its
victims are so innocent and defenseless, and (2) the crime is so terribly brutal. What's more,
there is no more callous denial of God's Being than abortion. In abortion, man sets himself up
as God to decide who shall live and who shall die. But man deserves no such power, for the
simple reason that man does not create himself. To think otherwise is to deny God His true
Being as the Author of Life.
~ Fr. Paul Marx, The Apostle of Life, p. XV ~

"God, the Lord of life, has entrusted to men the noble mission of safeguarding life, and men
must carry it out in a manner worthy of themselves. Life must be protected with the utmost
care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes."
[nefanda sunt crimina]
~ Vatican Council II, Church in the Modern World §51, edited by Austin Flannery, O.P. ~
"Not all values are of equal weight. Some
are more fundamental than others. ...I wish
to emphasize that no earthly value is more
fundamental than human life itself. Human
life is the condition for enjoying freedom
and all other values. Consequently, if one
must choose between protecting or serving
lesser human values that depend upon life
for their existence and life itself, human
life must take precedence." ~ the Late
Cardinal Joseph Bernadin, Archbishop of
Chicago

"A person's a person, no matter how


small." Dr Seuss

"If wombs had windows, there would be


no abortions." Anon.

"My theory is that most pro-choice adults maintain their position because they
a. had an abortion themselves
b. love someone who has had an abortion
c. helped a friend get an abortion
and to them, "killing" doesn't define what they (or those they love) are capable of. Ergo, it
must not be killing. (This was certainly my thinking when I was pro-abortion.)"
- Karen Edmisten
