Dr. Shivani Sachdev Gour Reviews on The Big Picture Discussion about- To Abort or Not?

A big Discussion on The Big Picture about- To Abort or Not

Ireland began voting on Friday in an abortion referendum that could be a milestone on a path of change in a country that, only two decades ago, was one of Europe’s most socially conservative. Polls suggest Irish voters are set to overturn one of the world’s strictest bans on terminations. On this edition of the big picture we discuss the issue of abortion. 

Guests –
  1. Shilpi Jain, Lawyer, Supreme Court
  2. Dr. Shivani Sachdev Gour, General Secretary, Indian Society for Third Party Assisted Reproduction
  3. Prof. Alok Sharma, Women’s Rights Activist

Dear Indian Government, ICMR, Activists, NGO’s & Foreign Press, STOP TRYING TO SAVE INDIAN WOMEN FROM THEMSELVES!!!!

Dear Indian Government, ICMR, Activists, NGO’s & Foreign Press,

Recently, a friend of mine quoted her mother who grew up in extreme poverty in Portugal: “Wealthy people are always telling poor people how they CAN’T make money.”

This incredibly sage pearl of wisdom made me think of how Indian Surrogate mothers have recently been slammed, persecuted, shamed, pushed down and silenced by people who are trying to swoop in and save them. But what exactly are these self-proclaimed superheroes trying to save Indian surrogates from?

Despite the demeaning way media outlets depict Indian women, surrogates in India are not frail, stupid, illiterate, incompetent underdogs who need activists to speak on their behalf. Indian surrogates are strong, wise, compassionate, intelligent and poised. They own their bodies. They are making decisions pertaining to their own bodies and lives for the first time in India’s patriarchal history. Surrogacy empowers Indian women to lead their families out of crisis, poverty and other challenges. The compensation they receive can finance the education of their children, start a lucrative business or build a decent home for their own families.

I find it reviling when activists talk about Indian surrogacy, pronouncing the word money like it is a filthy word they are gagging on. It is easy for privileged people to trivialize the surrogates’ compensation because to us, money is easily accessible and even dispensable. But to an Indian surrogate mother, money can be life changing. We are not talking about mere dollar bills here. Within the context of Indian surrogacy, money = life. Money = education. Money = opportunity. Money = home. Money = a child’s future. Money = hope. Money = freedom. You see, it is not the money itself, but what the money represents. If activists had their way, they would be denying Indian women the option to have financial independence.

Surrogacy is a job. It is not prostitution. It is not a baby market. The job description is simple: to care and nurture another’s child, giving them a safe place to grow. This kind of work is respectable and noble. Surrogacy may not be a job most Westerners would choose, or even a wealthy, Indian government official. 

It seems that any job that involves nurturing is looked down upon. Consider how even teachers and nurses are treated by society. Surrogacy is a good, honest job that can provide for a family. Women in poor countries work hard. They always have and they always will. However, the trend among activists is to try to stop women in poor countries from performing difficult tasks. If a job is physically challenging, the job is labelled as exploitive, even if the work is a blessing to a family. This is both condescending and destructive. All women have a right to work in whatever capacity they choose. Never underestimate what an Indian woman can achieve.

The government of India has recently proposed a ban on surrogacy. What fascinates me about this proposal is that the Indian Government is claiming to be concerned about women being exploited. And yet, their plan to protect women from being exploited is to take away their basic human rights. The media and the government alike have been quite proactive in preventing Indian surrogates from speaking. Many surrogates are eager to talk to the press so they can assure the public they are not being exploited. The surrogates are not even allowed to speak in the same Supreme Court trial that is supposedly fighting for them.  The questionable (and ironically timed) memorandum sent by the ICMR to halt Indian Surrogacy before any laws were passed, was challenged by over 70 surrogates who stormed the gates of the ICMR, demanding to be heard. Indian surrogates have their own voices and are perfectly capable of speaking without permission of the government and the foreign press.

Apparently, the ICMR and various Indian government officials consider a woman’s ability to create life to be shameful and dirty. They compare surrogates to breeding cows and prostitutes. Clearly, they do not understand science if they think there is anything sexual about being a surrogate. The sexualisation and objectification of surrogates by the government is what demoralizes surrogates; not the act of having a baby, and certainly not the act of offering the gift of life to another. Does the ancient and rich culture of India not consider motherhood to be sacred? Why the double standard? Thank you, Ovary Police, for hijacking women’s private parts and dictating if, how and when a woman can have a baby.

After reading the proposed bill to ban surrogacy, I don’t know whether I should laugh, cry, scream or vomit. There is nothing in this proposed bill that will benefit the surrogates in any way. Nearly every item is presumptuous and theoretical babble as to whether or not a surrogate understands what is going on. I am utterly amazed at how government officials, (most of whom are men) seem to be experts on what it feels like to be pregnant, and whether or not a woman can tolerate pregnancy. 

Furthermore, we could all save a lot of valuable time, effort and stress if surrogates were given the chance to speak for themselves. This ridiculous court trial, discussing the interests of surrogates, has been going on since 2012, and the surrogates are still not allowed to speak! Tell me again about how the Indian government respects women.

I’ve heard the argument that within the context of poverty, there is no such thing as choices or consent. This notion is vomitus – it does not liberate women, but rather suggests that a woman’s socio-economic background determines whether or not she is allowed to make decisions for herself. Such a philosophy oppresses women and sanctions the act of privileged people making choices that affect a woman’s fate. Additionally, Indian surrogacy clinics that operate ethically do not permit extremely impoverished women to be surrogates, making the poverty argument moot. If the critics are concerned about poverty, their time would be better spent on taking action to end extreme poverty, rather than disempowering women from taking control of their own financial destiny.

In conclusion, if you feel sorry for Indian surrogate mothers, don’t. Just stop it. They don’t need to be rescued. They are too busy changing the world for the better to listen to condescending nonsense from privileged people who underestimate them. Most people do not fully understand what surrogacy is, and therefore make gross assumptions about it. I strongly advise those of you who fit the description above to mind your own business and let Indian women choose their own destiny.

And after families have left with their much loved babies, we continue to support our surrogates through the Rohini Trust, through education, training, medical care and monetary grants. This is also the place that has the mailbox, where parents from overseas send photos and letters to their surrogates.

From Brazil: Gorgeous twins for a gorgeous family...

I am so pleased to announce the safe arrival of Carla and Gustavo's twins. I had the privilege of spending time with this lovely family and using my poor Portuguese to translate their message of care and love when they met their surrogate. 

"Dear Dra.Shivani  and all SCI team, 

we would like to thank God, Dra.Shivani, your team and your loved surrogacy, for making possible the realization of our dream. Although it was a very long way, never lose hope since we had full confidence in the SCI. We create a relationship of complicity because we knew the commitment that dra.Shivani had with our case. Thank you for never giving up on us. We always gratitude to everyone involved in this process and a definitive link with this amazing country that is India that brought us Miguel and Isabela. 

Carla and Gustavo.

 PS: We are open to, in whatever form, help other Brazilian couple, who speak English or not (as in our case) to also realize their dream."
"Querida Dra.Shivani e toda equipe SCI, 

 gostariamos de agradecer a Deus, Dra.Shivani, sua equipe e a querida barriga de aluguel, por tornar possivel a realizacao do nosso sonho. Apesar de ter sido um caminho muito longo, nunca perdemos a esperança uma vez que tínhamos total confiança na SCI. Criamos uma relação de cumplicidade pois sabíamos do empenho que a dra.Shivani tinha com o nosso caso. Obrigado por nunca desistir de nós. Teremos sempre gratidão a todas as pessoas envolvidas nesse processo e uma ligação definitiva com esse incrível país que é a India que nos trouxe Miguel e Isabela.

 Carla e Gustavo. 

PS: Estamos a disposição para, de qualquer que seja a forma, ajudar a outros casais brasileiros, que falem ou não inglês (como é o nosso caso) a também realizarem o seu sonho."

From Argentina: A big thank you from "a full family".

Dear Dr. Shivani, SCI Team,

Eden Hospital’s NICU staff and mainly Our “Angel” Surrogate Mother:

Never is too late to THANK YOU for making us parents after a long and difficult path, here we are to express A BIG THANK YOU to a BIG Team, that is behind this happy ending story, a team led by Dr Shivani:

-SCI staff (Admin  & Nurses) and the whole team who is involved in the process who showed at all times so much professionalism. During the pregnancy, the way they kept us updated, and every single email was replied when we had any inquiry, everything was straight forward …they showed at all times comforting empathy throughout the process.

It is worth mentioning that behind this great and well organized team there is a supportive leader who knows exactly what and how to meet our expectations, without her experience and professionalism this train called SCI would not move forward…she is the one who pulls this big train: Dr Shivani – THANK YOU for trusting in us, for being honest and straight forward on our first visit but mainly thanks for accepting our decision and to respect it.

After birth, the NICU staff at Eden Hospital showed the best professionalism and it is incredible how careful they are with the babies taking all the necessary precautions.

Once on the “real role play of being parents”: A special thanks to Mrs. Mariamma and her team of nurses  for assisting us in our first few weeks as parents, giving us tips and reassuring us when we did not know exactly what to do, helping us to sleep…during the nights…giving us the confidence to do it on our own.

Last but not the least…the main Protagonist of this story…”Our Angel” Now that we hold our babies it is hard to express in words how thankful we are to our angel, as we call our SM.

From the first time we knew these two little persons were growing in her belly, she became part of your day-to-day thoughts and prayers. She is the most beautiful and generous person, meeting her after the birth of the babies gave us peace to our souls to be able to thank her in person for letting us be parents … though the language was a barrier but I could confirmed there that words sometimes are not needed…the message was clear…she understood what our hugs and smiles towards her and our eyes full of tears meant…and even though time pass by I still remember the precise moment that …me and her together…I was holding my babies that she carried for me for 9 months…We are full family and we owe it to her…

Finally, we would also like to thank other IP (Intended Parents) who have come part of our lives while expecting some of them through the forum, which was our way to share with them because we were all on the same boat, and also other IP from our country who helped us in shortening the process.

We feel so lucky and overwhelmed to finally have our babies at home… and we wish everyone success on their journey.

For those who are considering Surrogacy let me tell you… the first step is always the most difficult one… but is possible….and most difficult is to believe that this time is YOUR time and that finally it will happen…but for once, you have to believe it, it is just a matter of, for once, believing that things finally can also happen to YOU as well…and soon a baby will be giggling in your home…

With kind regards and for ever thankful,

A full family from Argentina.
