Mother Teresa to be Canonized on September 4: “Abortion is the Greatest Threat to Peace”

By Stefano Gennarini, J.D.

(CFAM) Mother Teresa will be declared a Saint by Pope Francis in a special ceremony on Sunday at the Vatican. The pro-life heroine skillfully exploited her celebrity status to propel the pro-life cause internationally like no one else before her or since.

The four feet tall Albanian nun was never afraid to speak truth to power, even when it made the powerful of the world feel uncomfortable, and she never pandered to curry their favor. Draped in her iconic white sari, she traveled the globe condemning abortion even when doing so was inconvenient and unwelcome.

While lunching at the White House, First lady Hillary Clinton reportedly asked Mother Teresa why America had not yet elected a woman president. “She has probably been aborted,” Mother Teresa replied.

During her acceptance speech of the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize Mother Teresa first popularized her signature condemnation of abortion.
“The greatest destroyer of peace today is the cry of the innocent unborn child,” she told the crowd of nobles, politicians, and celebrities. After a moment of deathly silence Mother Teresa continued.
“For if a mother can murder her own child, in her own womb, what is left for you and for me? To kill each other.”
“Today millions of unborn children are being killed, but we say nothing.”
Then she raised her voice with alarm.
“To me the nations that have legalized abortion, they are the poorest nations. They are afraid of the little one! They are afraid of the unborn child! And the child must die. Because they don’t want to feed one more child! Because they don’t want to educate one more child! The child must die.”
She concluded her remarks about abortion with a plea.
“Let us make a strong resolution. We are going to save every little child. Every unborn child. Give them a chance to be born.”
Her plea was not heeded, and she continued to speak for the unborn unabashedly.
