Abortion rights judgment: a ray of hope!

Veena Johari, Uma Jadhav

Abstract

While granting a prisoner the right to abort her foetus, a recent Bombay High Court judgment recognised a woman’s absolute right to abortion.

It deals with the restrictions imposed by the law not only on when the foetus can be aborted, but also who can get the abortion done and in what circumstances.
