Skip to comments.Gang Rape Victim Faces Horrendous Purification Ritual Because She Rejected Abortion (India)
Posted on 06/17/2017 6:25:26 PM PDT by Morgana
7-month pregnant gang rape survivor denied a late-term abortion by the Gujurat high court in India. With those kinds of news stories, we regularly see organizations like Amnesty International and Planned Parenthood International utilizing such stories to demand the legalization of abortion through all nine of months of pregnancy not only for rape, but for any reason. Rape is just the key to open wide the abortion door.
But what if you learned the rest of the story? What if there is more to these stories than is initially being reported?
This particular pregnant rape survivors treatment is amongst the worst Ive ever read or heard, and it completely demonstrates why abortion is not the answer, and how we need a complete cultural shift worldwide in how pregnant rape victims are treated, and how a child conceived in rape should be welcomed and accepted.
According to the petition for abortion, the married 24 year old from Botad, India and mother of two other children, alleged that her husband had abandoned her and wanted her to terminate the 28-week pregnancy at any cost. But two months later and ready to deliver, her husband stands by her and she now says that part of her wanted to keep her unborn child, but her fate and the babys was in the hands of 100-200 people from her community. So as with most pregnant rape survivors, she didnt really want the abortion to begin with, but was under pressure from those close to her and from her community!
Her in-laws have shunned her, and because her husband is standing by her, he is now outcast from his own family. To make matters worse, their community is requiring her to go through a purification ritualor test with a tantric a type of high priest known for black magic. Tantrics have administered justice in the community long before the courts and police were ever established.
Her own parents are supporting this purification test out of fear for what will happen to them and their two other yet unmarried children once she gives birth to this child conceived out of rape. If the tantric doesnt clear her, then her siblings will never be able to marry.

The ritualistic test involves the tantric interrogating the rape victim, then testing her veracity by taking a pinch of barley seeds from a bag and asking her to say whether the number of seeds in his hand are even-numbered or odd. She is then repeatedly subjected to this process, including with a 10kg stone upon her head, which must remain in place until the tantric is satisfied that she is telling the truth. This ritual can reportedly take months to complete, under the belief that a Goddess will reveal the truth. If in the end, the rape victim passes the test, then no one can banish or condemn her; if not, then she is considered impure and is ostracized from the community, along with her extended family members.
Not only does she have to endure this grueling process within her community, she is also currently seeking help from the Chief Minister of a law enforcement agency because she says that the local police is protecting her primary rapist who held her captive for 250 days 8 months, because he is wealthy and influential. Thus far, she has not been able to obtain justice through law enforcement. Not only has he not been arrested, but she and her mother received threats from his bodyguard. When denying the abortion in mid-April, the High Court judge did grant her and her family police protection.
In addition, the Court appointed a Collector to ensure that proper medical facilities are provided, that the child is delivered safely and shall also see to it that after the delivery, the child is looked after well and is not abandoned in any manner. If necessary, the Collector can avail of the services of any NGO or any other government social organization in any manner.
The language from the High Court is encouraging; however, India has a deplorable track record in obtaining any justice for rape victims. In fact, in February of this year while she was in captivity, the Supreme Court of India sparked international outrage when it ruled that there is no such thing as marital rape in India a nation where daughters are sold to the highest bidder because dowry is still practiced and marriages are commonly arranged. In the case at-hand, the rapist obtained her thumb print on a notary, and used a tantric to pronounce her married to the rapist, since they were well aware of the recent high court ruling. None of those involved from the notary to the tantric to the multiple rapists have been arrested or even sought and named by the local police.
Yet, while the rapist and his accomplices run free, many would argue that the innocent child should have been punished by being put to death. The relevant law in India is the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act (MTPA) which does not permit abortion beyond 20 weeks, on the grounds that late-term abortions are dangerous for a womans health. Gujurat High Court Justice J B Pardiwala cited the fact that her life would be in peril with a 28-week abortion, then added the following: A child in her womb by a woman as a result of conception through an act of rape is not only extremely traumatic for her but humiliating, frightening and psychologically devastating and as a human being, more particularly in the Indian society, she becomes an object of scorn and ostracisation. This is very unfortunate.
But this Justice recognized that abortion is not the answer, and as cited above, he took the necessary steps to see that she would have solid health care, and that the child would be nurtured and protected. Therein lies the solution.
Can you imagine if instead of enacting laws with rape exceptions, legislators instead passed laws providing for special medical care for the delivery of rape-conceived children, and for the appointment of someone like the Collector in India who would ensure that these children and their mothers are properly cared for and not ostracized or abandoned? Thats the answer. Punish rapists, not babies and their rape survivor mothers. Protect babies and their mothers not rapists. How hard it that to understand?
When will India see that it needs Jesus?
When will America?
You are right.
People ask me “are you going to adopt and pay for all the babies that aren’t aborted and not wanted?”
No. Just like I dont pay for ALL of the homeless folks, children sick with cancer, mentally ill, chronically ill.
I can’t pay for ALL of them or take care of all them. Would that I could.
I CAN donate time and money and some of my tax money goes towards helping them too.
Or should we just kill all those folks too? Especially the unwanted among them?
“No. Just like I dont pay for ALL of the homeless folks, children sick with cancer, mentally ill, chronically ill.”
We at least try in America!
St Jude’s Hospital for sick children.
Your local homeless shelters which some people never even go in.
Okay the mentally ill we do need to work on our mental health system sucks but give us credit Dorothea Dix did try and that’s more than a lot of countries have done. As a result we do have better meds through science but still have a ways to go.
As for the chronically ill, well aborting sick babies is not the answer, finding a cure for their disease is. We have always had the best scientists why are they not on it for that Noble prize? Make America great again!
We do try.
And we do well. I know MANY hospitals in Manhattan that treat MANY poor and chronically ill free of charge and then there are the places like St. Jude’s
As for the mentally ill, I was in psych after my brain injury several times. (Hard injury to adjust to)
People with SEVERE mental illness are treated with dignity and these were NOT private hospitals.
They were AWFUL even 25 years ago, some of these same ones.
Like St. Vincent’s on Staten Island. But they’ve cleaned up their acts and treatment tremendously.
Problem is we have a lot of mentally ill people on the streets. Either drug/alcohol abuse or other forms of mental illness. These people can’t hack the meds for their illness because of the side affects. Most often they end up in jails/prisons. This is not good and not ways to treat them.
We need better meds without the side affects. I’m so shocks we are still using drugs made in the 1950’s and not much new has come along. Come on it’s 2017 this is the best we can do?
>Rape is just the key to open wide the abortion door.
Whatever. If you want to pass on the demon seed of some filthy, retarded, moronic rapist, feel free to do so.
Just don’t expect everyone to hail it as some great act.
I was on NARDIL for depression until I ate/drank one of the ZILLION things that can cause a stroke with it if taken together.
I had a hypertensive crisis but survived.
Nardil is an MAOI from the 50s that killed loads in France before it was discovered that it inhibits the breakdown of Tyramine, which leads to stroke.
Tyramine is only in cheeses, smoked meats, beer, wine, MSG, and a million other things!!
You are VERY correct in your analysis.
Was not even thinking of NARDIL. Remember that mum who freaked out and killed her kids? Andrea Yates? She had been on Haldol until her husband took her off of it so she could get pregnant again. Women can’t get pregnant on Haldol it has really bad side effects one is birth defects in children.
Now if Mrs. Yates was on Haldol figure how bad off she was?
Haldol is from the 1950’s and it’s basically a mental straitjacket. People who’ve been on it and gone off it say it’s very painful. If I had my way I’d ban the damn drug but nothing better has yet to come along.
My mother was a psych nurse and I Remember that name as a kid in the 70s.
It’s incredible that still the best they have.
The Yates story is heartbreaking.
“The Yates story is heartbreaking.”
I blame her husband. They were like the Duggars trying to have as many babies as possible. He was turning her into a broodmare.
In the Bible it says something about the Lord opening and closing the Womb all the time. Well the minute Mrs. Yates went on Haldol her Womb was closed by the Lord! Mr. Yates tried to tell God otherwise and God took all the kids home! God has the last say on everything.
The children are innocent, period. That said, I won’t judge a woman that decides not to continue with such a pregnancy. Such matter are between her and God alone.
Children conceived in rape are innocent and do not deserve the death penalty for the sins of their father
So you’re pro-choice then. Glad you outed yourself on this pro-life forum.
I bet you don’t even see the hypocrisy in your own statement. On the one hand you argue these children are innocent but on the other hand you say you’re ok with the mother murdering them. Interesting.
Nope. Nice one though. I’m pro-life. And please do not judge me when you don’t know who I am or what I’ve been through. We all have some kind of sin in our lives, as there are none righteous, no not one. All having to answer to God for it.
