legalizing abortion in India

legalizing abortion in India
Abortion in India is legal but it involves lot of complications.

It has now been almost 30 years since the passage of the MTP Act. Only a token number of abortions — a very tiny proportion of India’s crores of abortions that have been performed since then — were carried out safely in accordance with the Act’s provisions.

Though the practice of female feticide is against the law in India, many families, including those in the middle-class, continue to voluntarily abort female fetuses at alarmingly high rates. While abortion is legal in India, sex-selective abortion is not.

According to The Washington Times, there are about 6.7 million abortions in India annually
