    HRLN receives a positive order in Mumbai regarding termination of pregnancy past the 20-week period

    Date : 06/07/2018

    HRLN received a positive order from the High Court in Mumbai on the 6th November 2017 regarding a petitioner’s need to terminate her pregnancy past the 20-week period mandated by the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act, 1971. In this case, severe fetal abnormalities had been detected, but the petitioner was 25 weeks pregnant, and was thus not covered by the Act. Nevertheless, the High Court granted her request for a termination of pregnancy, and therefore upheld her right to reproductive and bodily autonomy.
