7. Mother Teresa thought abortion was the "greatest threat to peace"

She also thought suffering was a gift from god and she was baptizing those within the care of her charity without any regard to their chosen religion. Those who want to focus on Hitchens rather than Mother Teresa or the facts presented appear to embrace ad hominem because that seems to be all they have to impeach the work.
