While most of the people quoted below were talking about separating children and parents who had illegally entered the United States, the emotions and the outrage should also apply to the thousands of babies who are forcibly torn from their mothers every day via abortion. How can we really condemn one behavior but accept the other?
Yes, the mothers might have agreed to be separated from their babies via abortion, but the babies certainly did not agree to be torn from their mothers’ bodies and killed. If you really believe that separating families at the border is wrong, then you should also be outraged at forcibly tearing children from their mothers’ wombs. Why are you silent about this incredible tragedy?
God bless the supporters of little children, both the born and the unborn, both domestic and foreign children. God bless the lovers of children. #familiesbelongtogether #keepfamiliestogetherGod bless the supporters of little children, both the born and the unborn, both domestic and foreign children.

Tearing children away from their parents is so evil, it’s the inciting incident in almost every movie we’ve ever cared about. — Samantha Bee, comedienne
And that is exactly why abortion is the most evil thing ever. It is literally tearing children out of their mothers. Real children. Children hungering to live. Children crying out for life. Children we should be standing up for. Absolutely.
Save those babies! — Black Lives Matters protester
If only he were talking about the 50 million Black babies that have died on the abortion table during the past 50 years.
I call on all of America not to sit comfortably and be bystanders to … the injustices of separation of families that are going on, of separating American children through our broken criminal justice system that has thousands of children right now, incarcerated in the United States of America, who haven’t even had a trial yet. I think we all should be not sitting comfortably, idly by, while these moral outrages are going on, and we should protest. — Cory Booker, U.S. senator
I call on all of America not to sit comfortably by while children are torn from their mothers’ wombs via abortion. We should clearly not be sitting idly by while this moral outrage is going on. We should protest with all our hearts.
For those who would use the Holy Scripture to justify tearing children from the arms of their mother… we put the record straight: Jesus said ‘Suffer the little children, forbid them NOT to come onto me’… Not make the little children suffer! — Bono, singer and songwriter
Speak out also about the children being forcibly torn from their mothers’ wombs. Please. Listen to the real Jesus, as you just quoted.
Americans pride ourselves on being a moral nation, on being the nation that sends humanitarian relief to places devastated by natural disasters or famine or war. We pride ourselves on believing that people should be seen for the content of their character, not the color of their skin. We pride ourselves on acceptance. If we are truly that country, then it is our obligation … to stop separating parents and children in the first place. — Laura Bush, former first lady
We pride ourselves on being a moral nation except, alas, when it comes to abortion. Isn’t it time we returned to morality?
If the traditional pro-life movement is to regain credibility as something other than a tool of the Trump administration, it must speak out clearly and forcefully against harming innocent children as a means of deterring undocumented immigration. — Charles Camosy, professor
And, in turn, those speaking out against innocent children being taken from their parents must speak out clearly and forcefully against tearing children out of their mother’s wombs. That argument has to run both ways.
I’ve studied the Bible, both the Old and the New Testament. And what is being done using the name of religion is contrary to everything I was ever taught. Jesus said, “suffer the little children unto me.” He did not say, let the children suffer. So the test of any nation is how we treat the most vulnerable among us. — Hillary Clinton, presidential candidate
What is being done in the name of the law is contrary to what Jesus taught. Jesus would never have supported abortion. Never. Speak out also about the most vulnerable children being forcibly torn from their mothers’ wombs. Please.
Nursing infants ripped away from their mothers. … Everyone of us who has ever held a child in their arms, and every human being with a sense of compassion and decency should be outraged. — Hillary Clinton, presidential candidate

Give us all a break! What is more uncivil and cruel than tearing children away via abortion? That is what should be met with resolve and strength. Children’s lives are truly at stake. Abortion kills!

Using 2,000 children—pulling them out of the arms of their parents—is as disgusting a process as I’ve ever seen, and it really says as a country we should take a look in the mirror, and, duhhh, are we still the United States of America? — Andrew Cuomo, New York governor
Using 900,000 children—tearing them out of the wombs of their mothers—is as disgusting a process as I’ve ever seen. As a country, we really should take a look in the mirror.

But we have been forcibly tearing children away from their mothers since 1973. Not just now. Awaken to the reality, senator.
I used to be pro-abortion, many, many years ago. I would have called myself pro-choice. But then when I had my daughter Melissa, I went the other way. … When I heard Melissa’s little heartbeat on the monitor, I said, “Well, wait a minute. Even if all there is is a heartbeat, that’s life, that’s life.” — José Feliciano, singer and songwriter
Sadly, José Feliciano is one of the few celebrities who speak truth to life—the life of a child in the womb. The heartbeat says it all!
I have heard that it’s fashionable, or at least usual, that when in the first months of pregnancy they do studies to see if the child is healthy or has something, the first offer is: let’s send it away. I say this with pain: In the last century the whole world was scandalized about what the Nazis did to purify the race. Today we do the same, but now with white gloves. — Pope Francis
It’s not just a question of killing children in the womb because they might be born unhealthy. It’s an absolute question of killing children ever. In the womb. Or out of the womb.

Abortion wrenches children from the wombs of their mothers. It clearly traumatizes these children for life—all three seconds before they die and are tossed into waste containers. Please speak up about this terror.
The issue right now is we have a president who makes it a practice to forcibly separate young children from their parents. — Indecline group
The true issue right now (and for a long time before now) is that we have groups who make it a practice to forcibly tear young children from their mothers’ wombs. This isn’t an immigration issue. This is a humanitarian crisis. Pay attention!

If it’s true that the arc of the moral universe bends towards justice, let’s please help it bend a little faster, for the sake of these vulnerable children. — Mindy Kaling, actress

At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what image we create if we allow abortion to continue. We do have a big heart. We love people. We should, of course, also love the children living in their mother’s womb.
Families are the backbone of society. A policy that pulls them apart rather than building them up is immoral and just plain wrong. — Dara Khosrowshahi, Uber CEO

I’m sick and tired of people conveniently justifying abortion as simply a matter of choice. Killing should never be simply a matter of choice. That’s not right!
I cried last night. When I heard those babies crying. Knowing that young children have been taken from their mothers. Some of these young children may never, ever see their mothers or fathers again. — John Lewis, U.S. representative
And I hope he cries every night for the 3,000 babies taken from their mothers every day via abortion. They will definitely never see their mothers, never see their fathers, never see the light of day. Yes, Mr. Lewis, it is time not only to cry about such killing but also to take right action.
Save our babies. History will not be kind to us as a nation and as a people if we continue to go down this road. — John Lewis, U.S. representative
History will judge us for allowing abortion to continue. For allowing over 55 million babies to be killed since 1973. And that number only counts American babies.
Note: Blacks are aborted at 3.6 times the rate of whites. Abortion is clearly racist. Sad.
As people of faith and conscience, we feel that it is important that we speak out clearly in defense of basic human rights at this time. — Lion’s Roar Buddhist teachers
I truly hope that includes speaking out against the horror of abortion and speaking up for the basic human right of children to be born rather than killed.
I could never give up protecting the most vulnerable human beings in the world simply to win an election. — Dan Lipinski, U.S. congressperson
The most vulnerable human beings are those just waiting to be born.
Reading the news about the separation of children from their families, I can’t help but think about my own children. I cannot fathom a world where they would be ripped from my arms, taken to a place no better than a prison far from home. I feel we will never forget this moment in time. Bearing witness to these atrocities and that’s what they are, I can say for sure, remaining silent is not an option. … Supporting one another in these troubled times, we can remain on the right side of history: the side where children are safe and in their parents arms. Act now, call now, speak now, LOVE now. #familiesbelongtogether #lovenothate — Jennifer Lopez, actress and singer
I, too, cannot fathom a world where children are ripped from the wombs of their mothers and then taken to a waste can and dumped. This is a true atrocity, not fake news and photos. Act now, call now, speak now, love now. Families do belong together. #familiesbelongtogether #lovenothate
We are the ones telling our stories, so we have to be telling the stories of the invisible so they can be visible. — Diego Luna actor

Are we really a nation that accepts the cruelty of ripping children from their mothers’ wombs? Or are we a nation that values families and truly works to keep them together? Do we really support families and children? Or do we simply mouth niceties but behave abhorrently?
Abolish the death penalty. — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, U.S. representative
Yes, absolutely, especially on babies in the womb. Absolutely abolish THAT death penalty.

My whole message is about children. Anybody who hurts children, I’m a lioness. Watch out. — Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the house

Finally, someone speaking the truth.
I can’t imagine what the families living through this are enduring. Obviously, this is not the way we do things in Canada. — Justin Trudeau, Canadian prime minister

According to the World Health Organization, there are somewhere between 40 million and 50 million abortions carried out every year in the world. This corresponds to approximately 125,000 abortions per day.
Since 1973, roughly 55 million induced abortions have been performed in the United States.
Abortion accounted for nearly a third of all U.S. deaths in 2009 (32.1 percent). It also made up 61.1% of African-American deaths (Open Journal of Preventive Medicine). Blacks are aborted at 3.6 times the rate of whites. Abortion is clearly racist. Sad.
52% of all African-American pregnancies end in abortion. Abortion is the most common operation performed on women, yet it is also “the least regulated medical procedure” and is often “completely ignored by health regulation enforcement” (Source: Rev. Clenard Childress Jr.).
Over 1,000,000 children were forcibly torn from their mothers in 2019. And that’s in the United States alone! Shame on us.
Fight abortion now. It’s not only forcibly tearing babies from their mothers. It’s actually killing those babies! Stand up for life! Stand up now!
In 2018, Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez insisted that pro-life candidates have no place in the modern Democratic Party. Sad. Who champions life? That’s one of the reasons I’m running for the Democratic nomination for U.S. President in 2020.
If you really believe that separating families at the border is wrong, then you should also be outraged at forcibly tearing children from their mothers’ wombs. Why are you silent about this incredible tragedy? #keepfamiliestogether Click To Tweet
