Supreme Court of India, you’re wrong !

On February 2017 the Supreme Court of India allowed a mumbai woman to abort her 24 weeks child  while the present Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act 1971 of India allows abortion only up to 20 weeks. Long story short. The couple from mumbai have approached the courts to abort their 23 week old unborn child. We do not have the information if the child was boy or girl, but let’s name the child Hope, since the baby in this mother’s womb courageously faced the martyrdom in the face of rejection, manipulation, deception, lie and hopelessness of not just the parents and the family and media but the entire justice system of the country- INDIA. The couple had been married only a year and Hope is their first child. However they seemed to have a troubling situation in the pregnancy. It’s said that Hope (the baby in the womb) was diagnosed with Bilateral Renal Agenesis/ Potters Syndrome and anhydromnois   (doctor’s report on Hope) in lay man’s terms – the mother had low amniotic fluid which results in complications in baby’s growth in-utero and one such complication is potters syndrome.

Now, does all children with Potter’s syndrome die before birth? No. Does all women who have low amniotic fluid do not have a successful pregnancy? No. Is there a chance for the baby’s survival after birth? Absolutely. Can the mother be treated to have a positive pregnancy experience? Absolutely. There’s always a huge space where reason and logic has it’s limitation and things cannot be explained by ‘medicine’ and science alone and  incidents happen defying popular opinions. That’s called Miracle. But it’s mind boggling to see that the medical panel appointed by Supreme Court of India said that the woman with anhydromnios is endangering her life by continuing the pregnancy and the baby with Potters Syndrome has no chance of long term survival after birth. Lie! it’s a lie. there are cases where babies with Potter’s syndrome had lived outside womb, undergoing kidney transplant and living life and loving others. So what is long term survival according to the doctors panel appointed by Supreme Court? Will they decide in future only those baby who can live long should be allowed to be born? Are they making criterion for other people’s lives?

Everyone who is born in this earth has to face some risk. disease, accident, natural/man made disaster, just about anything and everything. But should we kill ourselves because of the possible risks we might face in life or hope to live the days in love? While there are similar cases where Abortion was recommended but the mother chose to go ahead with hope and courage being witness to the ‘sacrificial love’, the panel of doctors and the Justice system of India rather dealt with this child in a trashy manner. There was no respect for human life, nobody brought up the aspect of the Right to Life of the child, no one argued about prenatal or perinatal hospice as a humane choice or any other dignified approach in dealing with this issue. Everyone were so quick to kill the child. What kind of society have we become? By this case the Supreme Court of India has shown people that a few people will decide who should live and who shouldn’t and it’s ok to kill a baby with disability therefore encouraging discrimination against people with disabilities. The Supreme Court of India is legitimizing “Eugenics”. Shameful !

We had a choice here. To be hopeful, to surround the family with love and prayers, and make the child in womb feel loved, to teach the society of the value of ‘unconditional love’. At least when things go otherwise, the child would know that his or her mother and father fought for him/her, loved him/her and would continue to love in eternity. But to deal with this condition as if the child is unwanted, or some kind of trash is to teach the society “the survival of fittest”. Today they eliminate this poor little baby on accounts of disability, tomorrow they’ll eliminate you and me on the criterion they fix as they like. As Mother Teresa of Calcutta says : “Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use violence to get what they want. That is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion”.  

If you believe in “Karma” then you should expect to be treated like trash when you reach the stage where you would go dependent on someone else to take care of you. The karma of abortion settled in same life is Euthanasia. If you kill your child on accounts of disability, dependency, inconvenience well the same will be measured for you in the coming years. That’s how things work in the drama of life. India will learn her lesson the hard way: that, the Right to Life is a God given right, bestowed on every human life, not a right given by State. She will open her eyes when the Fertility Replacement level of the nation dips down to 2.0. That’s not quite far. You reap what you sow.

Indians at March for Life 2017

3 million Indians live in America. But not a single unified Prolife representation. My eyes constantly scanned the crowd to see if we could get hold of Indians and if somebody will get hold of us. But it was a shock to me when we learned that more than 50% of Indians who live in America are Democrats. And after a while I thought to myself, with less than 5% of catholic population in India and radical Hinduism running the government how could reality be different. After all Democrats advocated for slavery and segregation and have strong affiliation with racist ideology and so do upper caste hindus who established ‘Eugenic Clinics’ in India and whose families have the money and opportunity to come to America and finance radical Hindutva groups back in homeland. We finally spotted two faces that resembled of Indian origin but they were too shy to stop for a chat or to shake hands. Nevertheless we went parading the streets with our banner to show the few who gave thumbs up and smiles, encouraging our humble effort to represent Indians at the great March for Life.

 

The kindness showed by fellow Americans will not let you rest after the March is over so you can get back to the comfort of the heated cozy indoors. img_2730When you see pregnant women, babies, old people with walkers, people in wheel chair marching on a freezing windy day, you are moved to do more. This is the America which India never got to know. This is the America the liberal Indian media would never want the ordinary Indian to know. The America which defends life, which gives voice for the voiceless. And so this is exactly what we wanted our people back in India to know.
People estimated the crowd to be more than 700,000. And to see such a huge crowd march without any tension, without any violence, without a single curse word is what I feel is the mark of a changing Culture. And this is what we need in India. As we marched, looking at the enthusiasm of people, the chanting, the signs, the energy, the freedom, the spirit our hearts longed to experience the same in the homeland. Our people are being killed, killed in massive numbers. Our people are being exploited and betrayed. Our people need to wake up and get to work.

March for Life marks the infamous day of Jan 22,1973 when the Supreme Court of United States legalized the killing of innocent children in their mother’s womb through the deception, lie and manipulation of the case called Roe V Wade. However the truth is that this woman Roe never aborted her child. But her case opened the floodgates of abortion in America killing more than 50 million children in America alone since 1973. But… India legalized abortion 2 years before America and since then according to the IPPF reports 4-6 million abortions are performed every year in India. So what’s the fertility level and Fertility Replacement Level of the country? Less than 2.3 . Which means India is dying.

6 million abortions and 4 million sterilization per year, including  mifeprestone in family planning program, the media’s betrayal, the dark forgotten past of legalizing abortion and above all this, trying to extend legal abortion date beyond fetal viability and bringing in active euthanasia and unregulated sex education  is simply evil beyond comprehension. And we don’t March, no candlelight vigils, no prayers, no prolife legislation, nothing. The Church is silent, the NGO’s active in promoting death, the culture is changing and people are being killed. Every day- every minute. When are we going to wake up?

However, great things happen from humble beginning. And may be this March is one such milestone. We had good conversation with friends and family in India, conversations about abortion and life which usually doesn’t happen, friends wondering what are we into, and strangers sharing posts and questioning about abortion. May be 2018 would be different, with increased sense of awareness of Culture of death and reverence to Life in India.

The Priest in the Streets

“This old man stands here every day, every single day for years….”

“Oh where’s he? there he is…he’s been here for years…”

“He’s around here for a very long time, he comes everyday and stands here . ..”

These are the conversations I overheard as I stood by the door next to the Brooklyn’s largest Abortion Clinic where babies are killed up to six months for reasons varying from ignorance to arrogance. Although skeptical and reluctant I decided to go with this ‘old man’ because I was more than curious to know how a person could be ‘on the streets’ for almost 50 years taking up the spitting and cursing and ridicules and in return offers help and joyful smile. Waiting at 14 De kalb, I was taken aback by what I saw.  I couldn’t keep it to myself and wanted others to see it.

Not because they do not know him. The entire Pro Life movement in Continental US knows him. But not my generation, the generation that is closed within self, faking introversion, and obsessed with social media. This generation needs to know that one man’s answering to God’s call  changes the entire course of events. On what basis do I say that?

Monsignor left the Operation Rescue, the rescue way of defending life, blocking doors and protesting in front of clinics in 1960’s answering God’s call to take up the meek way, bringing in the meekest Blessed Mother into the play, handing over Rosaries to women who go for abortion and asking them to consider their choice, joining with the long patient suffering of God as he usually calls it, making the place the Modern Day Calvary. And what was the outcome? not just the shutting down of abortion clinics by which thousands of babies, mothers and fathers were saved in body  and soul. But the conversion of heart. And how long has this been going on? Coming 2017 will be his 50 years in the streets going clinic after clinic praying and offering help, encouraging people to pray and sacrifice, doing vigil after vigil bring God’s presence into the most hopeless haunted places of the world – the abortion clinics.

My generation is an ‘instant’ generation. Everything is based on instant gratification. From food to nuptial union, Money to fame. Pleasure, pain, joy, sorrow,…they are collectively simulated to that instant style. That’s one of the reasons God seems alien to them these days. And since God Himself is alien, there’s no hope, no meaning, no happiness, no unity, no love. The generation polluted of anxiety, noise and chaos. And to this generation I wanted to show what Jesus looked like if He was here today. Because even Pro Lifers of the present generation want instant response to their efforts. They get satisfied with instant results, they get excited with instant reactions. But there’s something about this priest who used to spend 6 hrs in the streets, battling cancer past 20 years and still in the streets last 4 decades. That’s the participation in the long patient suffering of God and men. Not many times we find the Director or founder of cross continental organizations in the streets and being accessible to people of humble standards.

His methods are radical. His message is hard to accept. It echoes the one taught 2000 years ago. The infamous message of “Love”.

 When the video was posted in Facebook, people started pouring in, women confessing their abortions, others comforting them and reminding them of God’s mercy and unconditional love, people encouraging one another to spread the message of Hope, Love and Forgiveness. The response to the video startled me personally in facing the massive wounded population yearning for the message of love, the crowd yearning for God. People were encouraged to be present prayerfully in love in front of the clinics to bear the image of Christ, to be heroic Christians. The message was widely accepted with more than 53,000 views.

And this post should add on to the article posted on August 13, 2015 What a single person can do? The answer : Can capture such moments of hope and spread the message of love.

When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. – Mathew: 9:36

From Rescue to Rosary

Joe asked me to meet Msgr.Reilly and every time we’re together at the sidewalk at Manhattan he insists that I’d love to meet him and I would fake an interest in my face and give some excuse. This has been going on for a couple of months. What’s so interesting about an 80 yr old priest and what more possibly he could teach me i thought. an astounding arrogance incarnate I am! However fate paved way that I had to think about my country ‘India’ which performs approximately 6 million abortions every year. I knocked the doors of well known Pro Life leaders asking for help for my country. Since i posses neither money nor reputation nothing about me or my request interested them. And just as I got used to call every Pro Life leader with the weird request to help INDIA or leave a message only to never hear back, one day I receive a call from a feeble old man whose voice or tone I never understood. After much difficulty I deciphered that he’d like to see me in person to discuss about ‘INDIA’.  And  that’s the beginning of the drastic change in the sidewalk counseling journey- from Rescue to Rosary.

20160419_165735

I decided to meet the owner of this fragile broken voice. Brooklyn- Uh not the kind of place like Manhattan. Old monastery building and rusty gates. I ring the doorbell and enter into a small room which is the visiting room of Monsignor. Old creaky fan, half ripped wall paper, old fashioned lights, not so fancy chairs, worn out table with piles of paper and on top of it is a letter from Fr.Frank Pavone the  Director of Priests for Life requesting Monsignor to review his book, Oh I know Fr. Pavone ! I try to make myself comfortable in one of those antique chairs waiting to see the owner of the broken voice. And behind me I hear a feeble voice trying to speak hard “Hello “. There he is, Monsignor. He introduces himself and asks how can I help. I was pretty straight forward. “My country needs help, I want to start a Pro life movement there and don’t know how or when and nothing more but my country needs help.” He smiled at me and asked do i know anything about Helpers and their work. My reaction pretty much conveyed him that I don’t. So he patiently introduces himself.

20160419_203217.jpg

Monsignor Philip J Reilly, the founder and Director of Helpers of God’s Precious Infants whose movement has spread from 4 person group in Brooklyn to Australia, Taiwan, Latvia, Yugoslavia, Austria, Capetown South Africa, Seoul South Korea, Bogota Columbia, South America and Central America. Shortly, Helpers are in all continents of the world. And here is the man who founded it sitting right in front of me and not bothered by the fact that I did not know about him or his movement. Incredible! The work of this Man whose seeds keep reaping the incalculable benefit of “LIFE” itself in remote corners of the universe: families saved, Doctors conversion, clinic closures, spooky tales of saying Mass inside abortion clinics with the equipment still there, vigils with overflowing crowd, death threats, million dollar lawsuits, cardinals and bishops heading the vigils, clinics turning to life centers on and on and on. What is behind all this? How did he do it? What made a simple movement of 4 people go trans continental? Well it’s definitely not technology, technique or tithe. The answer is a transformational journey from Rescue to Rosary!

I was taught to get out of my shell, to approach people, and to talk. I was taught various counter arguments to keep myself equipped to defend life, I was taught to stand for life without being ashamed and in fact with courage, I was taught how to start a conversation, hook people into it, i was taught to show videos, get deep into subjects, I was taught to divert people from getting into clinic and taking them to Crisis Pregnancy Centers, I was taught to handle arguments with contraception very delicately, i was taught not to talk about God at first in fear of putting off people, I was taught to be humorous, cool, relaxed all of which is perfectly fine. Yes! it has saved lives. But I had to unlearn what I learnt even though this is the famous methodology followed by the majority in the Pro Life circle.

I went to do sidewalk counseling with Monsignor Reilly to know what he had been doing and still doing with such perseverance for almost 50 years. He gave a bunch of Rosaries in my hand with brochures containing information for Women who are abortion minded, who already had abortion as well as those taking contraceptive pills and asked me to give in front of the largest Ambulatory Abortion clinic in Brooklyn where children are killed up to 6 months. All I have to do is to be there with the attitude of being at the foot of the Cross with Prayer and Fasting handing out the Rosary and brochure to the women going in as well as to those coming out of the clinic.

This, I followed with reluctance for few months now. Hard to distrust our human intentions, skills and actions and completely leave the ground to God. No place for thinking of oneself as savior, no chance for accumulation of pride, no vain chatting, no relying on one’s own capacity and skills, no room for winning arguments or prove oneself, even no room for taking a sip of water, no pushing people to make decisions. Looks foolish from outside isn’t it?  Wait a min. Within few months of doing this even with nowhere near perfection the clinic in Elizabeth, NJ announces shifting to smaller office and downsizing the business. How about that? The place is going to be sold, they’re moving and so are we following them until they join us. Conversion! Monsignor says “God loves the woman before and after abortion. He wants their salvation. He wants the mother to be with Him in Eternity, and so the Abortionist and those involved. He died for them. He died for the soldier who would pierce his side with lance, blood and water gushed and this blind soldier was healed and saved. That’s the same with the abortionist.”It’s about saving the immortal souls.

But there’s more to this transcendence from Rescue to Rosary. Monsignor himself admits how he used to do things in wrong way, the rescue way: save the babies ! stop the abortion! until he learned his lessons the hard way. It’s about fighting the Culture of death. That’s way more in depth than one can assume. To fight this we must know the roots of the Culture of Death and  how did it start, where things went wrong. Pope John Paul ii explains clearly in Evangelium Vitae. Abortion is demonic. Attack against the human being created in the image and likeness of God is an attack on God himself. And to me it is stupid to think that we mortal humans can fight this battle by ourselves. This is supernatural. And realizing this truth with humility is the intelligence behind Monsignor’s approach.

 The spirituality of the Helpers is to be present at the Modern Day Calvary in Prayer with the children who are crucified like Jesus with the humility and meekness of Blessed Mother completely absorbed in passion experiencing both suffering and joy. Because after crucifixion and  death did take place Redemption and  Resurrection.

The battle is not between us versus them. It’s between Heaven and Hell!

Abortion is anti woman

I end my day as usual with instagram involving in some online evangelization. So I post the above picture to capture the attention of Indians mainly so they can  relate to the quote. And not surprisingly I catch a fish. Hooray! This is what I was waiting for! Here’s the question she throws at me:

There’s a serious need for prolife education and evangelization.  People who can spend time in the streets and online engaging in conversations, again, engaging in conversations not arguments in such a way seeds are planted. The rest will be taken care of.

Jai hind!

Picture 5 – Rape

IMG_20160501_220722

Most of them I meet at sidewalk and online come up with this argument regarding Abortion: So what if the woman was raped? Should she be forced to carry the ‘rape child’? She will have to live the trauma of rape every time seeing the child and She wasn’t ready for it. My question to them mostly starts like this:

  1. Did the child rape? Wasn’t the child victim as the mother ?
  2. How does punishing the child bring justice and healing to the woman?
  3. If the child is robbed of it’s dignity because of being conceived in rape how can then we expect others in society to treat the women who was raped with dignity?

You cannot restore the dignity of woman who was traumatized by rape without accepting the child conceived in the same situation, victimized just as her, most of the time scape goated  in the place of rapist to be violently torn from womb and negated of a chance to live. Mahatma Gandhi advocates bringing up the child conceived out of infidelity because hurting the child will never heal anyone nor appease her anger and never will unrape her. Her healing depends on her acceptance of the child. If not convinced meet Rebecca Keisling of Save the 1.

And this is how instagram community responds:

Power of Picture 4- Contraception

dd0f4835-b4bd-41c0-8f14-0ce51c22a081

How misformed people are! That zygotes are not ‘person’ or ‘human being’ and it’s ok to kill at the beginning of human life in early stages- that’s right, when the target is defenseless and vulnerable and without any identity. That the Mother’s right supersedes the Right of the child in her that she can decide to torture the child, kill it or keep it. What on earth are we living? Where’s human compassion? kindness? where’s humanity? Read the comments below posted as pictures and you’ll know whatever Mother Teresa said was so true.

Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.

This is the present situation of the unborn child. People wanted sex without life and now sex without love. Women have no right to complain on being used by men because they allowed so. This is exactly expressed in fine tone by Daniel Vitz who writes on Mahatma Gandhi :

He(Gandhi) believed that woman “should realize her majesty and train herself to say ‘No’ when she means it,” and that man “must understand that woman is his companion and helpmate in life, and not a means of satisfying his carnal desire.” In Gandhi’s view, contraception made it easier to objectify women, and would poison a true understanding of their worth.

If we open door to contraception and ask Abortion not to enter, well we’ve got it wrong. Pope Paul VI clearly predicted the present Genocide back in 60’s in his encyclical “Humanae Vitae”. When you separate unitive and procreative aspect human sexuality from the sacred bond of Marriage, hell is unleashed.

Posted this on instagram and guess who stopped by???? A Writer of Indian origin from New York .

Anupama Sharma please keep your New York Feminism trash for yourselves, Indian women do not need anymore of the western fake feminism which is nothing but baby killing. We need true empowerment that comes only out of ahimsa and charity. Do not poison our nation and steal our womanhood. Our woman have all right to be a Mother and have everything that requires to execute the job in its perfect essence.
