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

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.
