:Judie Brown: Obama Nobel Prize 'slap in the face' to Mother Teresa
Washington, DC (09 October 2009) – The following is a statement from Judie Brown, president of American Life League, on the announcement that President Barack Obama is the 2009 recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.
"Bestowing the Nobel Prize on the most rabid pro-abortion president in history is a direct slap in the face to past recipient, Mother Teresa of Calcutta who said, upon receiving her Nobel Peace Prize: "the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a direct war, a direct killing - direct murder by the mother herself."
"In awarding the prize to Obama, the Nobel Committee is announcing that abortion is the cornerstone of a hellish "peace" - the damning silence of 51 million aborted children in the United States alone.
"The Nobel Committee has bestowed the "Peace Prize" on a man dedicated to war in the womb."
