SC nod to abort 31-week foetus

by AnkitaOctober 8, 2017

The Supreme Court has allowed a woman, who is in an advanced stage of pregnancy, to abort her 31-week foetus after it was detected that both its kidneys were not functioning.

A Bench, headed by Justice A.K. Sikri, relied on a report by the medical board of Mumbai’s J. J. Hospital, where the woman was examined, and noted that continuation of the pregnancy would cause more mental anguish to her. According to the doctors’ opinion, the foetus had severe congenital problems, both its kidneys were not functioning, and the condition was not compatible to life after birth.
