Quotes about Abortion

"I've noticed that everybody that is for abortion has already been born."
-Ronald Reagan, quoted in New York Times, 22 September 1980

"If it isn't a baby, then you aren't pregnant, so what are you aborting?"
-Author Unknown

"It is statistically confirmed that the most dangerous place to be with in regard to the preservation of one's life is in the womb of a mother."
-Author Unknown

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

"Guilty? Yes. No matter what the motive, love of ease, or a desire to save from suffering the unborn innocent, the woman is awfully guilty who commits the deed. It will burden her conscience in life, it will burden her soul in death; But oh, thrice guilty is he who drove her to the desperation which impelled her to the crime!"
-Susan B. Anthony In her publication The Revolution

"When we consider that woman are treated as property, it is degrading to women. That we should Treat our children as property to be disposed of as we see fit."
-Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Letter to Julia Ward Howe, October 16, 1873, recorded in Howe's diary at Harvard University Library

"You have to become a bit schizophrenic. In one room yoiu encourage the patient that the slight irregularity of the fetal heart is not important- that she is going to have a fine, healthy baby. Then in the next room, you assure another woman, on whom you just did a saline abortion, that its good that the heart is already irregular....she has nothing to worry about. She is NOT going to have a live baby......Somebody has to do it. Unfortunately, we are the executioners in this instance."
-Abortionist Dr. John Szenes.

"All I am saying is, why limit the killing to the womb? Nothing magical happens at birth. Of course, infanticide needs to be strictly legally controlled and rare - but it should not be ruled out, any more than abortion."
-Peter Singer

"A woman does not walk into an abortion clinic and say " I can not have this fetus." She says
" I can not have this baby"."

-Author Unknown


With the arrival of the ship "Women on Waves" abortion has been thrust into the limelight once again. At this moment Abortion is illegal here in Portugal.

Abortion is one of those topics that leaves me confused. How people can on one hand argue the right to life of a serial killer, and on the other be prepared to condemn a life that hasn´t even had the chance to see the sun. Where does life start? A million dollar question. What is the diffrence between life at 1 week after birth and 1 week before birth? Does a baby born at 7 1/2 months have more rights than the same child still in the womb? And does the baby of 7 1/2 months have more right to life than a child of 5 months, 4months, 3months. Just where do we draw the line?

Shouldn´t we be out there fighting tooth and nail to force our goverments into providing conditions for all pregnant woman to have their babies.

And then I hear many screaming that a woman has the right to do with her body what she wants! Wrong. My rights start where your rights end. The mother´s rights start where the child´s rights end and vica versa.

How can we casually discuss killing a human, born or not born? Didn´t we all pass 9 months in a womb, being prepared for the outside world.

Have you ever seen an abortion?
