I'm pro-life. The law protects women's right to chose, and I think there's a competing right, which is the rights of the unborn. And as you get closer to term, I think the rights of the unborn become more and more prevalent.     

Jeb Bush

The care of human life and happiness and not their destruction is the first and only legitimate object of good government.     

Thomas Jefferson

Sweeter even than to have had the joy of children of my own has it been for me to help bring about a better state of things for mothers generally, so that their unborn little ones could not be willed away from them.     

Susan B. Anthony

Give us the grace... When the sacredness of life before birth is attacked, to stand up and proclaim that no one ever has the authority to destroy unborn life.     

John Paul II

Defend the unborn against abortion even if they persecute you, calumniate you, set traps for you, take you to court or kill you.     

Pope Francis

I think the platform ought to be pro-life. It is the basis of the Republican Party. People have got to understand that abortion is not a contraceptive.     

George W. Bush

I should have known better. Pro-life arguments are now based on scientific evidence and the pro-choice arguments are not. That is a cultural, historical fact.     

Stanley Fish

The life in pro-life denotes not the quality of life, but life itself.     

John Shimkus

Give that child to me. I want it. I will care for it. I am willing to accept any child who would be aborted and to give that child to a married couple who will love the child and be loved by the child.     

Mother Teresa

A person is a person no matter how small.     

Dr. Seuss

Abortion and racism are both symptoms of a fundamental human error. The error is thinking that when someone stands in the way of our wants, we can justify getting that person out of our lives. Abortion and racism stem from the same poisonous root, selfishness.     

Alveda King

I believe that life is valuable, even when it is unwanted, even when it is physically imperfect. I believe our society has a responsibility to defend the vulnerable and the weak. And I believe our nation should set a goal that unborn children should be welcomed in life and protected in law.     

George W. Bush

Like an animal caught in a trap, trying to gnaw off its own leg, a woman who seeks abortion is trying to escape a desperate situation by an act of violence and self-loss. Abortion is not a sign that women are free, but a sign that they are desperate.     

Frederica Mathewes-Green

Abortion should be listed as a weapon of mass destruction against the voiceless.     

E. A. Bucchianeri

I've noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.     

Ronald Reagan

The fundamental human right, the presupposition of every other right, is the right to life itself. This is true of life from the moment of conception until its natural end. Abortion, consequently, cannot be a human right — it is the very opposite. It is a deep wound in society.     

Pope Benedict XVI

The right to life is the first human right. Abortion is killing someone that cannot defend him or herself.     

Pope Francis

Human life must always be defended from its beginning in the womb and must be recognised as a gift of God that guarantees the future of humanity.     

Pope Francis

Too many people use abortion as a form of birth control. And that's very wrong. I could never, ever have an abortion.     

Brooke Shields

The Pro-Life cause is the preeminent cause of our time, and this struggle between the gospel of life and the culture of death will determine the destiny of mankind.     

Peter Garrett

This is a debate about our understanding of human dignity, what it means to be a member of the human family, even though tiny, powerless and unwanted.     

Henry Hyde

Most women “choose” abortion precisely because they believe they have no other choice.     

Serrin M. Foster

Pro-life includes improving life after birth.     

Mike Huckabee

It seems to me as clear as daylight that abortion would be a crime.     

Mahatma Gandhi

I am pro-choice, but I don't consider that inconsistent at all with pro-life - there's no way that having an abortion, ever, is an easy decision, and it more often errs on the side of absolutely wrenching, not to mention physically debilitating.     

Rachel Sklar

Let us say "Yes" to life and not death. Let us say "Yes" to freedom and not enslavement to the many idols of our time. In a word, let us say "Yes" to the God who is love, life and freedom, and who never disappoints.     

Pope Francis

It's time that we recognize the Supreme Court is not the supreme being, and we change the policy to be pro-life and protect children instead of rip up their body parts and sell them like they're parts to a Buick.     

Mike Huckabee

The fight for the right to life is not the cause of a special few, but the cause of every man, woman and child who cares not only about his or her own family, but the whole family of man.     

Mildred Jefferson

Abortion is inherently different from other medical procedures because no other procedure involves the purposeful termination of a potential life.     

Potter Stewart

To be actively pro-life is to contribute to the renewal of society through the promotion of the common good. It is impossible to further the common good without acknowledging and defending the right to life, upon which all the other inalienable rights of individuals are founded and from which they develop.     

Pope John Paul II
