Are you with me?
One more hit and trial method
29/11/2007

Abortion is banned in India since 1971. But like many other tooth-less laws in our country, abortion is going on rampant in broad daylight under the nose of law enforcing authorities, who are sitting duck to this raging foeticide and infant mortality. Recently, a law was passed by the government (ideated Renuka Chowdhury) wherein it was made compulsory for pregnant women to register with the government medical departments. One reason for such a step is the falling gender ratio in the last decade (by about 2%). This law has been framed to reduce illegal and needless abortions cases and reduce female foeticide. While the law has an extension clause that permits an abortion under some specific circumstances, quite mysteriously nothing has been mentioned in details of such clauses. It is imperative for the policy makers to realise that the real malaise is not with abortion but with pre-natal sex determination technology that is easily available. While the new law in essence is justified but it is important to make sure that it does not end up creating needless impediments for deserving abortions while letting prejudice based abortions pass through the loopholes. Nevertheless, our eagerness for banning abortions should not end up in fuelling population explosion.
