Abortion, the Devil's Work
Christ warned in John 8:44 that Satan always lies and Satan always kills. He cautioned that Satan “was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth.”
The truth is that God hates the killing of innocent babies and Satan loves it.
Satan tried to kill the baby Moses by inspiring Pharaoh’s attempt to annihilate every male Israelite child in Egypt (Exodus 1:15). The baby Jesus survived a similar bloodbath as Satan tried to kill Him through Herod’s command that every male child under the age of two be butchered (Matthew 2:16).
Satan would kill God if he could. Since he cannot, he grieves the heart of God by provoking the slaughter of children created in God’s image and likeness.
God signaled His regard for and love of life in the womb when He chose to become man at the moment of Christ’s conception, not the moment of His birth.
Learning to Love
In Washington, DC in 1994 Mother Teresa said that we fight abortion by teaching the mother what love really means: "to be willing to give until it hurts...So, the mother who is thinking of abortion, should be helped to love, that is, to give until it hurts her plans, or her free time, to respect the life of her child." Gustave Thibon has said that the true God transforms violence into suffering, while the false god transforms suffering into violence. The woman tempted to have an abortion will transform her suffering into violence unless she allows love to transform her, and make her willing to give herself away. The Eucharist gives both the lesson and the power. Mom is to say "This is my body, my blood, my life, given up for you my child."

As Catholics and followers of Our Lord Jesus Christ, we believe God is the author of all life, and we do not believe in ending a life to solve a problem.
