A panel of docs on the Submit-Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMS), yesterday determined to abort the fetus of the 10-year-old woman from Rohtak, Haryana who was raped repeatedly by her stepfather.
The choice was taken after the docs assessed that the sufferer, was “20 weeks plus-minus two weeks” pregnant.
The docs took the choice on Tuesday after an area court docket gave them two choices – think about the foetus’s age to be lower than 20 weeks and go forward with the abortion. Or, look ahead to the being pregnant to finish its full time period in the event that they really feel the unborn youngster has surpassed the age cap.
Below the Medical Termination of Being pregnant Act, abortion shouldn’t be allowed if the fetus is 20 weeks or older.

“The board has determined to go together with the abortion. This resolution is in the most effective curiosity of the kid (10-year-old woman),”PGIMS, Rohtak physician, Prashant Kumar mentioned.
