USA (Tuesday, August 30, 2016, Gaudium Press) Next Sunday Pope Francis will declare Mother Teresa a saint, the very woman who fought Hillary Clinton tooth and nail for her abortion advocacy.
Before some 3,000 people at the National Prayer Breakfast at the Washington DC Hilton Hotel in 1994-including pro-abortion Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Al and Tipper Gore-Mother Teresa spoke passionately about abortion, calling it the “greatest destroyer of peace today,” a “war against the child,” and “murder by the mother herself.”
“And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?” the nun continued.
“By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems,” she said. “Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. This is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.”
The swelling applause swept across the room, erupting into a standing ovation that lasted some five or six minutes.
The room was awash with clapping, with one conspicuous exception. At the head table, a few feet away from Mother Teresa, the Clintons and the Gores sat in stony silence, not clapping, not standing.
If only she had kept her mouth shut about abortion and stuck to a politically correct script condemning poverty and urging greater government involvement in social assistance, all would have been fine. But Teresa was convinced that the unborn child was truly the poorest of the poor, and deserved protection against those who would seek to destroy it.
One year earlier, Hillary had urged her husband Bill on the very first day of his presidency to sign five executive orders authorizing federal funding for abortion, galvanizing the U.S. government’s sordid partnership with Planned Parenthood.
