|Life is the precious most gift of God.
God is the author of life, and therefore, it is divine and inviolable. God created us in
His own image and likeness (Gen. 1.26). We have been called to respect and protect our own
lives as well as those who are vulnerable. The most
vulnerable human being is the unborn child.
Life is in great danger today. People kill themselves and one another recklessly. But the
worst form of these killing is the crime of abortion and infanticide. Thousands of youth
lives are deliberately destroyed everyday. Hundreds of mothers also die from complications
of abortion. Abortion is not just the removal of some
unwanted tissues or a lifeless mass from the womb; it is the murder of a living human
being. A foetus is a human being from the very moment of conception.
The unborn child has a right to life. Nobody, including the mother, has any authority to
deny this right. Abortion is morally and spiritually wrong as it is against the laws of
God and humanity. The Church opposes all forms of violation on life. All major religions
of the world denounce abortion.
"The killing of an embryo is equal to killing of Brahman"
- Vishnusastra (XXXXI)
"You shall not kill your children for fear of want. To kill them is a great sin"
- Quran (17,31)
"Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or as a means, is
gravely contrary to the moral law"
- Canon Law No 2271 of Catholic Church.
"Birth control by contraceptives and the like (abortion) is a profound error"
"Abortion being allowed, has brought so much hatred - for if a mother can murder her
own child, what is left for others to kill each other"?
- Mother Teresa
"Abortion opposes the basic theme of Christian ethics, i.e the defence of life, in a
nakedly frontal attack"
- Archbishop Alan de Lastic
