Abortion is 'greatest destroyer of peace'

President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize last week. While the president has accomplished very little overall, he's already made significant (though expected) strides in promoting the killing of unborn children all around the world.

That's the sad irony of this award. Consider what another Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Mother Teresa, said in a speech the day after she won:
But I feel a great destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a direct war, a direct killing, direct murder by the mother herself. ...

And today the greatest means, the greatest destroyer of peace is abortion. And we who are standing here—our parents wanted us. We would not be here if our parents would do that to us.

Our children, we want them, we love them. But what of the millions? Many people are very, very concerned with the children of India, with the children of Africa where quite a number die, maybe of malnutrition, of hunger and so on, but many are dying deliberately by the will of the mother. And this is what is the greatest destroyer of peace today. Because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing in between.
