If you know of a woman who does not
want her child and wishes to abort, try to convince
her to bring that child to me. I will
love them and will see in them a sign of
God’s love. Mother Theresa, upon being granted the Peace
Nobel Prize (Oslo, December 10th, 1979).
A few weeks
ago, just as Mexico City legislators were about to legalize
the act of killing unborn children while in the womb,
my family gathered for dinner and we talked to every
one of our children, young and older ones, for they
were all overly concerned about the matter.
I explained to them
how this is not a problem happening just in Mexico
City, but that the same was about to happen in
Nicaragua, Colombia, Bolivia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Chile, Argentina and, well, basically
all of Latin America and in Latin countries in Europe.
We´re talking about a well thought out and structured
international agenda, which goal, based on Gramsci´s strategy, is to
lead to the demise of Christian Families.
It was then that
my husband, always wise and sensible, reminded us of God’s
goodness, and of how He always finds a way to
make something good out of any bad. He was
sure that we, as Catholics, would be able to make
something good out of all of this, and said:
Mother Theresa was alive, and someone was to interview her
on the matter, seeing how abortion is being legalized in
so many countries, what do you think she would say?
- Mother Theresa would have said what she always
said: “Don’t kill them, give them to me.”
Mother Theresa is
no longer in this world for us to hear her
say it, but we can say it on her behalf...
Would any one of you be willing to take
a child in, just to keep him or her from
being murdered by their mother?
I would. This doesn´t mean
I have unlimited resources, or an extremely large home, but...
In order to care for and educate a baby it
is not necessary to have great financial wealth or ample
spaces. In order to take in a child, what
you need is not room in your house, but room
in your heart.
How many babies can fit into the Planas
family home? Not a lot, for our space is
rather limited (we live with our nine children in a
2,700 ft_ home). Maybe we could take in ten
of them, or fifteen, or twenty at the most, but...
How many babies do you think could fit in the
homes and hearts of all the Catholics that log into
Catholic.net every day? Millions and millions of them!
The Church has
hundreds of institutions working on behalf of pregnant women, with
hundreds of shelters for orphaned children and hundreds of pro-life
organizations, and there are millions of Catholic couples hoping to
adopt a child. I´ve also met many Catholics who
would be willing to at least offer financial support for
the caring of these babies.
That is why I decided to
launch this campaign through Catholic.net:
Don’t kill them; bring them to
I’ve seen the success that campaigns such as “single-match” or
“Catholic-match” have had for single young men and women looking
to find their "better half" through the Internet and build
This campaign could be called “Baby-match”, for the goal
is to use the Internet and pair unwanted babies with
couples willing to take care of them, educate and love
My goal is not for Catholic.net to turn into an
Adoption Agency, nor do I wish for the adoptions to
be carried out through the Internet. Each case is
to meet their respective country´s legal processes(*), but this could
be a good start for establishing a bond between those
in need of help and those institutions who could possibly
offer that help.
If you know of an institution that could
Sign them up!
If you’re willing to take
in or help one of these babies, in order to
keep it from being aborted...
If you’re a
couple willing to adopt a baby...
If you’re pregnant...
If you don’t want your baby...
If you´ve thought
Don’t kill him, give that child to me!
