Supreme Court Reverses Order On 14-Year-Old’s Pregnancy Termination

Share on:

The Supreme Court has recalled its earlier order that allowed a 14-year-old rape survivor to terminate her almost 30-week pregnancy. It comes after her parents expressed concern over her health if she were to undergo the process at such an advanced stage of pregnancy.
A bench of Chief Justice of India D Y Chandrachud and J B Pardiwala decided to alter its decision noting that the interest of the child is paramount after interacting with her.
The court had earlier allowed the request of the girl’s mother for medical termination of pregnancy.
