A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on babies, citizenship, death, delusion, immortality, innocence, life, questions, rudeness, seduction, simplicity, women, wonder, and world

The great physician, Dr. Henry G. Armitage, Jr., states, "Not without comment shall it come to pass that a state (so fretful for the preservation of the praying mantis but holding an unborn baby to be of no account) can send a spark of immortality swinging out into limbo and conspire with citizen and physician to turn a fragile, living object of simple innocence and complex wonder into a pathetic pulp and consign it by rude and peremptory passage to the furnace or sewer - unknown, unwanted [and] undefended." He further questions how a woman as "the fertile adornment of our race can be deluded into the notion that she is a mere poetress of unwanted luggage or be by blandishment seduced into believing that she has dominion over life not her own." He says, "An abortion is never commonplace, for the world holds no heartbreak like the death of innocence."

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on babies, darkness, deed, facts, life, potential, and words

When we don't like to face up to hard facts, we use soft words. We do not speak about killing a baby within the womb, but about "termination of potential life." Words are often multiplied to try to cover dark deeds.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on ability and god

God does not begin by asking us about our ability, but only about our availability, and if we then prove our dependability, he will increase our capability!

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on admiration, body, fashion, fatherhood, protest, sacred, sons, and women

I thank the Father that His Only Begotten Son did not say in defiant protest at Calvary, "My body is my own!" I stand in admiration of women today who resist the "fashion of abortion, by refusing to make the sacred womb a tomb!"

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on america, babies, concern, and reason

If the nearly one-and-a-half million babies aborted in America each year could, somehow, vote, chameleon candidates would find fresh reason to be concerned about abortion, whereas now they are unconcerned.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on birth, darkness, deed, health, parenthood, people, and words

Ironically, as some people become harder, they use softer words to describe dark deeds. This, too, is part of being sedated by secularism. Needless abortion, for instance, is a "reproductive health procedure, . . ." "Illegitimacy" gives way to the wholly sanitized words "non-marital birth" or "alternative parenting."
