It is the ultimate “hate crime” as well.
“America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe v. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father’s role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts — a child — as a competitor, an intrusion, and an inconvenience. It has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the independent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters. And, in granting this unconscionable power, it has exposed many women to unjust and selfish demands from their husbands or other sexual partners. Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government. They are every human being’s entitlement by virtue of his humanity. The right to life does not depend, and must not be declared to be contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or a sovereign.”
Mother Teresa (Wall Street Journal, 2/25/94)
Yes it is.
The UN is now explaining to the third world that abortion is a violation of a woman's rights.
Sounds strange, the details are here.
“A mothers womb should be the place where the smallest of Gods children are nurtured and protected, but abortion advocacy makes the womb a place of violence and bloodshed.”
First off you have to believe in God. Since in a totalitarian state both mother and child belong to the state and not God, abortion does not become an act of immorality.
The act of abortion in the US is due to the left wanting to create this type of state.
We need to keep fighting the fight.
Excellent blog you have. Keep up the excellent blogging!

Agreed! But there’s more...
Amnesty International is a non-religious Human Rights - Civil rights group. Abortion is a Human Rights - Civil rights matter, if you are not allowed to be born all other rights are meaningless.

“... because life is all there is and all that matters, and
abortion destroys the life of an innocent human being.”
Opinion from a pro-life Atheist
An Atheist Argues Against Abortion. David Hunt, PE.
It is not only the ultimate discrimination, it is the ultimate way to usurp God’s sovereignty. Believing themselves wise, they became fools ...
Amen to that Marvin. And have a Happy Father’s Day!
Thank you, brother, and the same blessing to on this your Father’s Day.
The language is remarkably consonent with the Declaration of Independence. The rights to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" are "inalienable" rights. They are not conditional rights granted by a sovereign government to its subjects, but inalienable rights, with which all men are "endowed by their Creator."
To be exact: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
Mothers have no more right to terminate the lives of their innocent children than sovereigns have the right to terminate the lives of innocent subjects. Indeed, "subject" is not an American concept. The proper term is "citizen." The purpose of the state is to help citizens to come together to protect their inalienable rights from unjust usurpation over what belongs only to God.
I don't know whether Mother Teresa is speaking here as a Catholic or as a student of the American Constitution, since on these points the two converge and use similar language, for both are based on natural law theory and the Judaeo-Christian moral tradition and the understanding of man's nature as a creature of God endowed with certain freedoms.
Excellent points (as usual) Cicero.
I think that it’s an excerpt from her speech at the DC Prayer breakfast at which the Klintons and Algores were attending?
They were frozen by her words as I have read from that event.
hmmmm—fresh brewed aromatic wonderful rich flavorful coffee--awesome...
