Background: Nobel Peace Prize winner, Mother Teresa, has spoken out against abortion. She says it's at the root of evil and suffering in the world and is nothing but murder in the mother's womb. Her comments came during a visit to New Delhi.
SYNOPSIS: Mother Teresa made the trip to New delhi at the invitation of India's Prime Minister Charan Singh. There, as she's done elsewhere in India for the past fifty years, she visited the needy and the destitute. At the Nirmal Hirday Home it was a special welcome.
Throughout her life as a missionary Mother Teresa has delivered one simple message, "the poor must know that we 'love them".
At the home she distributed food. She didn't eat herself; this was her day of fasting. Mother Teresa has described her Nobel Prize as a gift to the poor. Another gift from a woman who's already given 36-thousand destitute and hungry people shelter in Calcutta alone. Thousands more come to her homes in other cities.
Mother Teresa's attack on abortion came later when she addressed a preparatory meeting for a United Nations Women's Conference. She asked the delegates "if a mother can destroy her child then how can you stop people from killing one another?"
