MTP Act - The Flag Bearer of Unconstitutionality

MTP Act - The Flag Bearer of Unconstitutionality - Author: Pritish Kishore

In order to understand the basis on which the MTP Act is premised, it is necessary to identify the two main driving forces behind the Act, those being:

1) Those who were proponents of family planning and population control and saw the legalization of abortion as a potential way of lowering the birth rate.

2) Those who were concerned with abortions being conducted by non-qualified, untrained and ill-equipped medical practitioners under unhygienic conditions and therefore were concerned with the health factor.
