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

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:

Just two cents…

unnamed (2) I was tired the other day after my usual visit from the sidewalk. It’s a tough job I’ve ever done. Experts in this life saving mission would say I wouldn’t be there in front of the abortion clinic if I wasn’t called for it. However even if do not get to save a single life something in me keeps moving and doesn’t allow me to settle in. Good for it, because I would’ve given up long time ago. So I try to squeeze my tiny brain to think What do I have to give? what am I best in? what else I could do ? these were the questions I asked myself. All around me I see wonderful people with beautiful talents. But not many people realize how important their presence can be at sidewalk no matter if they can or cannot counsel.

People are different: some hearts can be touched by talking through the horrors of abortion, for others it works to get them realize what they are dealing with is a child, for many others it’s only prayer, some can be touched by protests but a lot others through art. Because art speaks in a silent way,loud and clear an approach which is very much required in sidewalk.

We need artists to contribute at the sidewalk through their artwork. May it be beautiful art depicting the life inside the womb, or the art that depicts how strong women are to handle the crisis or art which shows the humanity of the unborn or fatherhood or beauty of family or the science of fetology and so on and on. I realized the possibilities are endless. So what a single person can do for the speaking up for the voiceless can be much more than they can think. All that requires is the attitude to give. Am I right?

Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.” – Mark:12:43
