India : 47 years of MTP Act and 300 million murdered

(Live Action News) August 10, 2018 – “Man will turn into the cancer of the planet,” said Julian Huxley after seeing crowds gathered on the banks of the Ganges in India. During his tenure as the Minister of Health and Family Planning in India, Chandrasekhar, an associate of Huxley and a close friend of Margaret Sanger (and a member of the British Eugenics Society), made sure to carry forward his fellow eugenicists’ dream by opening India’s doors to abortion.

August 10, 2018, marks the 47th anniversary of legalized abortion in India through the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act (1971). The country legalized abortion with one of the most permissive laws of the time while abortion was illegal and unthinkable for most reasons in many parts of the world. The law was passed as a result of mounting international pressure to control India’s population. This began the carnage of unborn children through abortion in the country.

“Official” abortion numbers are grossly underestimated

The government figures on the number of abortions committed so far since 1971 is around 25 million. However, this figure does not represent the true number of abortions; it only accounts for abortions committed at government-approved facilities by registered practitioners. Therefore, illegal sex-selective abortions, legal abortions committed at private hospitals, and medication abortions (RU-486) obtained over-the-counter or on the black market are not included in this data.

Since the year 2000, the government has been reporting that an average of 700,000 abortions were committed in registered facilities in the country annually. But several reports over the years contradict this number significantly.

Since 1976, several reports have claimed that 4-7 million abortions occur annually in India. Chabbra and Nuna (1994) found that an estimated 6.7 million abortions were committed in the country annually — and in 2002, the Abortion Assessment Project of India estimated an annual figure of 6.4 million. UNICEF’s report (1996) estimated 5 million annually.

But, even more shocking, a recent study conducted by IIPS (the International Institute of Population Sciences) and the Guttmacher Institute listed the actual incidence of abortion in India for 2015 at 15.6 million — a figure twenty times higher than the government reports.

Abortion pill sales have skyrocketed

According to a report published in Lancet Global Health, in 2016, India recorded a staggering annual sale of 11 million doses of mifepristone and misoprostol — the RU-486 abortion pill regimen. (To compare, in 2012, 7 million were sold, and in 2011, 6 million.) These packs can only be used for abortion. The Indian government has allowed the use of mifepristone and misoprostol for abortion since 2002 — and in just five years (2002 to 2007), the country saw a whopping 646% increase in the sale of abortion pills. The total market for abortion pills in India is 400 crores ($4 billion).

Sex-selective abortions are still prevalent

The data on the prevalence of sex-selective abortions also paints a bleak picture. Almost 4.2 to 12.1 million sex selective abortions were committed in a period of three decades (1980-2010). This data correlates with recent estimates by the Population Research Institute, derived from the figures provided by India’s government, that 11 to 14 million sex-selective abortions were committed since 1990. Abortion promoters around the world celebrate ‘chemical abortion’ as liberating, empowering, modern and reliable. But in India, it has exacerbated the problem of gendercide, targeting women even before they’re born.

There is a widespread consensus among scholars that the annual estimate of 6 million abortions is an underestimate. But even taking these low estimates as an average, one can see that the number of preborn children killed in India totals nearly 300 million.

Last year, the Prime Minister’s office disapproved of an attempt to extend the legal abortion limit to 24 weeks after a Sangili incident in which aborted baby girls were fed to dogs. However, another effort this year, backed by the National Commission for Women, the government is seeking to extend legal abortion to 24 weeks. For preborn babies with disabilities, there would be no limit, and abortions could be committed up to birth.

If this effort is passed, India will soon surpass China in the slaughter of massive numbers of preborn children.

Why did I write to 167 Bishops of India?

wrote to almost all the Bishops in India, including the office of the Nuncio. I had to write to all of them because there is just too much innocent blood flowing down the nation.

This August 10th marks the 47th anniversary of legalized abortion in India. So far, the total estimate of children killed by abortion since 1971 is unknown. But research published in 2017 shows that the total number of abortions performed in India for the year 2015 alone must be 15.6 million.

India legalized abortion on August 10th, 1971 through the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act. But so far there is no single day of remembrance or observance of this horrible day. There are no vigils, protests, public prayer or marches of any sort. It’s just another day in India because India is busy “developing” herself as the fastest growing economy in the world as she stands tall on the pile of butchered bodies of our own babies. We literally practice ‘Narabali’ (human sacrifice) in order to achieve the status of a “Developed Nation”.

Every time we observe the Day of Prayer for the Protection of Unborn children and participate in the January 22 March for Life in the U.S we join with almost a million Americans who stand up for the unborn children killed by abortion in their country and my heart longs for those children murdered in India. Nobody mourns for our children killed by the legal abortion in our country. They are not remembered, their death easily erased off without a memorial. So I thought why not write to the Bishops requesting them to offer Mass and to encourage priests under their leadership to do so as well on August 10th?

With prayers and guidance from a few well-wishers, I embarked on this weird task. I wrote to almost 170 bishops in India pleading them to declare August 10th as “A Day of Prayer for Legal Protection of Unborn Children” and observe the day by offering Mass, praying for an end to abortion. This ‘Day of Remembrance’ will serve threefold purpose: to do penance for the mass murder of innocent children, to pray for the legal protection of unborn children and for the forgiveness and healing of those involved in it and to speak about it so that people will be encouraged to Defend Life.

Was it fruitful? Of course. Seven Bishops and a priest wrote back. They acknowledged the problem, appreciated the effort, and even took time to read the full letter, assuring that they would offer Mass on August 10th as well as encourage other priests to do the same. His Excellency Bishop Alex Vadakumthala Archbishop of Kannur encouraged this humble effort saying ‘it is a timely reminder’ for him to give priority to the pro-life ministry. He chose to speak on the topic of ‘Sanctity of Life’ in Shalom Mirror a live TV show the following week.

Archbishop Peter Machado, Archbishop of Bangalore, Fr. Pepin Gnana head of Family Commission in Archdiocese of Calcutta, Bishop Thomas Dabre, Bishop of Poona, His Excellency Mar Paul Alappatt, Bishop of Ramanathapuram, Bishop Chacko Thottumariackal, Bishop of Indore, His Excellency Mar George Njaralakatt, Archbishop of Telicherry and Archbishop Leo Cornelio, the Archbishop of Bhopal were kind enough to respond and assured me that they would offer Mass on August 10th.

Will this trivial effort change the dynamics? Well I can say yes without a slightest doubt because, we’re speaking about offering the Holy Sacrifice of Mass.

There is no stopping abortion without the Eucharist. Abortion is murder. It is on a scale today greater than all previous combined abortion murders in human history. Public demonstrations and statements of all kinds and sizes are all very important. They offer the opportunity for the pro-life Catholic to publicly identify before the world where he or she stands. We must put first things first to know and understand that behind every abortion is the devil, a murderer from the beginning. Our own human resources are entirely inadequate. Divine grace is absolutely necessary to stop abortion. All graces come through Jesus Christ in His human nature. The primary source of these graces is Holy Mass, Holy Communion and Holy Adoration of our Lord in His Real Presence.”

Fr John Hardon, S.J.

Letter to Bishops in India

Your Excellency,                                                                                                       May 30, 2018

Greetings!

I’m writing to you for a very urgent cause and on behalf of poor lay brothers, sisters and families under your apostolic leadership, who in the poverty of our being, need you in this gravest hour of our times.

My name is Carmel Nisha Pius Franco. I’m the daughter of The Archdiocese of Madras- Mylapore, Chennai involved in service of the weakest and vulnerable of our society – the unborn, the sick, the dying. Those whose voice is often unheard or silenced deliberately.

I’m a pro-life activist from a very humble background, traveling between U.S. and India, involved in the cause for life through writing, speaking, activism, counseling women near abortion clinics, helping pregnancy centers etc. However, it is not on my account that I write to Your Excellency but only in the worthy name of Jesus Christ and our beloved Mother to bring to your attention the urgent need of your people.

India is under attack. It has always been the focus of proponents of Eugenics and population control. While some of the problems highlighted by the propaganda machinery seem legitimate they often have hidden agendas and inhumane solutions to human problems. The prime example is the state-sponsored murder of unborn children as a solution to poverty reduction. Rather than eradicating poverty, it began to eradicate children by violent and extreme methods of abortion. Rather than finding a cure for genetic abnormalities, it began eliminating children with disabilities in the womb. Rather than enhancing the dignity of women, it turns women against their own children and families brainwashing them to think that motherhood is a burden and always an obstacle to empowerment. Rather than teaching families in the path of Responsible Parenthood (Humanae Vitae no.10) it pushes artificial contraceptives (they are mostly abortifacients) erasing the sacredness of  ‘marital act’ and God’s purpose for human sexuality. The prophecy of Blessed Pope Paul VI in his encyclical Humane Vitae is actually happening around the globe and especially in our country India.

These activities are not accidental occurrences or random events. They are well-planned actions of few people executed in a systematic fashion in India as well as other poor and developing nations. They push these policies through various UN organizations like WHO, UNICEF and UNFPA. They collaborate with huge non-profit corporates like Bill and Melinda Gates, Ford Foundation, George Soro’s Open Foundation, McArthur Foundation, Planned Parenthood, Marie Stopes International.  They influence, fund and push many of our government policies in collaboration with other local NGO’s. They create and spread false alarms and panic over country’s problems in order to gain blind acceptance or even celebration of evils like abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, embryo experimentation, cloning, egg freezing, surrogacy, sperm/egg harvesting, unethical artificial reproductive technologies, organ trafficking etc

16 Million Abortions in one year

While these policies encountered strong opposition in many western countries, it was quite easily adopted and implemented aggressively in India. One good example would be the legalization of Abortion in our country. August 10, 1971, India legalized abortion two years before the United States of America, one of the most liberal countries in the world. While there have always been some elements of Culture of Death in India- the normalization and celebration of evil through state sponsorship shows signs of dangerous and troubling times.

As Your Excellency might already know that there is an organized effort in India to lift the current ban on abortion from 20 weeks to 24 / 26 weeks and with a hidden agenda in the policy to even make it on-demand. Recently Passive Euthanasia was legalized in India. It laid down the foundation for active euthanasia. Many Indian research institutions have been conducting experiments on embryos. Organ trade has killed more people under the disguise of ‘brain dead’. Our children are sexualized through government’s RKSK program and are taught to ask for contraceptives and abortion without parental knowledge and consent. With the widespread prevalence of IVF clinics, children formed outside the womb are discarded at an enormous rate. Human life and dignity are targeted and exploited both inside and outside the womb in our country.

A recent research study conducted by Guttmacher Institute and IIPS institute in Mumbai found that almost 16 million abortions were performed in India in 2015. 16 million innocent children murdered in just one year. We do not know yet how many lives are lost to abortion since 1971 or how many are killed through euthanasia or how many embryos are left to die or purposely killed by selective reduction in the sprawling IVF clinics of our country.

This holocaust compels me to beg your attention. Your Excellency, we must do something. We cannot say ‘I do not know, am I my brother’s keeper’ (Pope John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae no.08)

In my capacity of working with C-FAM (the primary organization that defends life, Holy See and the family at United Nations), being trained by Monsignor Dr. Philip Reilly (the founder and director of Helpers of God’s Precious Infants who has traveled to 6 continents and have worked with hundreds of Bishops in U.S, Europe and elsewhere in conducting powerful prolife witness), being a coworker with Sisters of Life-( a contemplative active religious community whose charism is the protection and enhancement of the sacredness of every human life), most importantly in my capacity of working to build a culture of life in India, I see and realize from my experience that the countries/communities that are vigorously prolife when Catholics and their Catholic Bishops led the charge. A clear example of this can be seen in America where Bishops are unapologetically Pro-life and encourage priests and people to do likewise. They conduct prayer vigils outside abortion clinics, they support local projects that help women in crisis pregnancy, they head healing retreats for men and women hurt by abortion, they instruct people on crucial decisions like end of life care. Among the pro-life apostolate, the most important act of them is having a National day of remembrance with the offering of the Holy Sacrifice of Mass for the anniversary of the legalization of abortion in their country. This helped me as a Catholic to bring to my attention and provides an opportunity to speak against the evil and strike a conversation with the faithful on its deadly effects.

Mass and National Day of Remembrance for the Unborn

As our beloved Pope St. John Paul II reminds us in Evangelium Vitae (no.96-100), we are called to defend life and build a culture of life through concrete measures all of which begins with the formation of conscience and the renewal of this culture. Growing up under the protection of our Catholic tradition, on solemn days of remembrance, I always had pondered about the cause. It gave me and many of fellow brothers and sisters an opportunity to remember, to pray and commit ourselves to the cause. Your Excellency, with the tragedy of abortion and evils of the culture of death happening in our midst, we should have a ‘Day of Remembrance for the unborn children killed by legalized abortion in India’. It should be on August 10th the anniversary of legal abortion in the country (August 10, 1973). On this day of solemn remembrance, Mass should be offered across the dioceses for the reparation of grave sins committed against human life and the dignity of the human person through abortion in our country.

As Pope John Paul II says: ‘whoever attacks human life, in some way attacks God himself.’ It is only fitting that these crimes which are orchestrated by the power of the evil one can only be dealt with the most supernatural weapon at our disposal- The Eucharist. ‘Behind every murder is the evil one’ (Evangelium Vitae 08) and so is behind every abortion the power of evil displayed. Fr. John Harden (Servant of God) said ‘There is no stopping of Abortion without the Eucharist’.

Remembering the day of the legalization of Abortion

When human life is not respected inside the womb, it will not be treated with dignity and reverence outside the womb. It is meaningless to try and solve other problems and human rights abuses of people without addressing the issue of abortion. “If we accept that a Mother can kill her own child, what is left for us to kill each other?” – St. Teresa of Calcutta Legalization of murder, justification of this intrinsically evil act and celebration of this human sacrifice marks with clarity the destruction of the society. The legalization of abortion opened the doors for Euthanasia and other dangerous evils Ever since the legalization of abortion all evil that was once unthinkable became justifiable.

Your Excellency! I beg you, we must act now and act with diligence. It is already too late.

Abortion is happening in Christian homes, in Catholic households in India. Your Excellency must have encountered this in your ministry to God’s people in your respective diocese. But we are beyond abortion at this stage. Catholic couples are taking refuge to abortifacients, unethical artificial reproductive technologies and becoming complicit in the attack against human life. Manipulating embryos as a commodity to be designed, ordered and purchased to one’s own liking. Elders are deserted, sick are treated as a burden and on the mask of false compassion put to death.

Dearest father, am sure you would agree with me that before doing any programs or campaigns in dealing with this ‘Culture of Death’ in India first of all, we need the help of God. Because these are not simply social evils as the secular world looks at them. These are not ‘developmental issues’ or ‘political issues’ it is most of all a spiritual battle. The battle between good and evil. We need the help of God. With the Mass on the Day of remembrance, we would have recourse to God, reparation of sins and reaching the conscience of people.

“A great prayer for life is urgently needed, a prayer which will rise up throughout the world. Through special initiatives and in daily prayer, may an impassioned plea rise to God, the Creator and lover of life, from every Christian community, from every group and association, from every family and from the heart of every believer.” – Pope Saint John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae, no. 100* 

I beg Your Excellency for the sake of your people and on behalf of the 400 million innocent unborn children murdered so far in our Indian soil through abortion to offer in your diocese Solemn Mass on August 10th remembering the mass murder of unborn children and making it as a day of prayer for the legal protection of unborn children..

I have attached some supporting documents that might help in this special task along with my contact information. I make myself available at your service to help parishes under your care in any way I can through all possible means in this task if Your Excellency wishes and permits.

Also, I wish to acknowledge the fact of my unworthiness. I dared to approach you only as a daughter would approach her father in times of anguish and need, for the sake of and on behalf of our people who are unable to speak for themselves and whose silent screams should not be left unheard. I would like to thank Your Excellency for the time and submit hopefully to Your grace and God’s providence.

 

Respectfully Yours in Christ,

Carmel Nisha Pius Franco

Representing India at March for Life 2018

What is the use of living in US and not participating in March for Life? What’s the point of being an Indian and not representing India at this event? Especially when President Trump has reinstated Mexico City Policy stopping US tax payer funded abortions abroad including India. So off we drove to Washington D.C with our sign to thank Trump Administration or at least to let people know about it and show our gratitude. Come on! more than 40 -60 million U.S. dollars spent annually on abortion in India so far will be redirected from now on to life affirming projects and how can we not thank the Trump administration for this? especially when Indian pro choice media is busy trashing President (#globalgagrule)?

So glad the message was well received by people. We got a handful of them stop us and ask more details about the Mexico City Policy and how it affected India. A couple of them took pictures and it caught the eye of few media as well. Most of all people promised us with prayers for an end to the Culture of Death in India.

Because the reality that 16 million innocent children were killed in one year in India is something that should give us sleepless nights. The numbers are huge, the tragedy is monstrous, there’s too much involved and what a singe person can do? this is the question many people ask me. Yes, it is huge, it is filthy big, it is monstrous but what a single person can do depends upon the person’s conviction to proclaim the truth and to defend life and one’s faith in God.

While almost a million Americans were marching in D.C remembering the victims of abortion holocaust and the day it was legalized in their country we marched for the babies in America by abortion as well as the babies killed in India through same way with American taxpayer money. Trust me! we got thousands of them giving thumbs up and hundreds quite surprised at our post. At the end of the day so many of these people came to know about the abortion holocaust happening in India, with and without American funds and gained solidarity in standing up for life.

Here are few humble mentions :

March for Life 2018 – one of the unforgettable experience.  Pray, wish and hope for such a movement in India to defend our unborn Indians. Shame on us Indians that we go about eating drinking and partying as our unborn brothers and sisters are killed in India in the name of population control and development. But this shall not remain the same. It shall change, when you and me begin to do what we can do.

“. . . we are facing an enormous and dramatic clash between good and evil, death and life, the “culture of death” and the “culture of life”. We find ourselves not only faced with but necessarily in the midst of this conflict: we are all involved and we all share in it, with the inescapable responsibility of choosing to be unconditionally pro-life.” (Evangelium Vitae

 

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.


“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”.

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.

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.
