Supreme Court allows woman to abort 26-week-old foetus without skull

The bench directed that termination of the woman's pregnancy would be performed by doctors of Pune-based B J Government Medical College where she had undergone medical check-up.

The parents then approached the courts to allow an abortion.India does not allow medical terminations after 20 weeks unless there is a threat to the mother's life.In May, the top court allowed a 10-year-old rape victim from Haryana to abort her almost 21-week foetus.

The Mumbai girl reportedly went into a shell when she found out about the pregnancy which entered the third trimester this week, completing six and a half months.

The Charkop police later filed a complaint of sexual assault against an unknown person under the POSCO Act and the Indian Penal Code.

"The girl, studying in the sixth or seventh standard, was clueless that she was carrying a baby.The pregnancy was only discovered recently after her parents took her to hospital complaining of stomach pain. The incident occurred at least seven months ago". The girl has been sent to JJ Hospital for a detailed examination. In the Chandigarh case, where the minor was raped by her uncle repeatedly, the abortion plea was rejected on the ground that it could be a threat to the girl's life.

According to gynaecologist Nikhil Datar, the girl's parents thought she was gaining weight due to a thyroid disorder or some other illness, and did not see a doctor immediately. "In these cases, we have to look at the choice of the mother and preserve her right to life first". The Child Welfare Committee (CWC) will be involved as she is under-aged.

On Wednesday, the gynaecologist informed the police about the pregnancy and called them to register an FIR at his clinic. "We are working on identifying and apprehending the accused".

"A good news is that over the years, the incidence of teenage pregnancy has declined".

"She has not told us who is responsible for the sexual assault or where it occurred".
