have right to safe and legal abortion

The Supreme Court of India on Thursday held that all women, irrespective of their marital status, have the right to safe and legal abortion. The Apex Court held that the marital status of women cannot be ground to deprive them right to abort unwanted pregnancies.

Under the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act, both single and unmarried women have the right to abort the foetus till 24 weeks of pregnancy.

A bench comprising Justice DY Chandrachud, Justice JB Pardiwala, and Justice AS Bopanna made the ground-breaking judgement. Justice Chandrachud said if Rule 3bc was to be interpreted that it applies to married women it would mean that unmarried does not involve in sex.

The bench also stressed recognising marital rape though purely within the ambit of abortion. The court said under the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act, the definition of rape must include marital rape.

He further said the artificial distinction between married and unmarried women cannot be sustained.

Highlighting differences in circumstances, he said a woman in a situation of emergency or disaster may decide to have the child but it may also impact the choice of a woman who may think pregnancy is not viable to keep.

While talking about reproductive autonomy being closely linked to bodily autonomy, the Apex Court ruled that the right to choose contraception, the number of children and whether or not to abort have to be taken without the influence of social factors.

The ground-breaking judgement by the Supreme Court of India comes after the court allowed a pregnant unmarried woman to abort her 24-week foetus in July this year. The court had sought a report from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on safe abortion of the girl’s circumstance and directed the hospital to form a team of two experts to report on whether abortion is possible without harming the girl.

The girl moved to Supreme Court after the Delhi High Court refused to grant her permission to terminate the pregnancy that was 23 weeks.

Excise policy case: Delhi court extends BRS leader K Kavitha’s judicial custody till April 23

Rouse Avenue court sends BRS leader K Kavitha to judicial custody till April 23 in excise policy case

In relation to the excise policy case, Delhi’s Rouse Avenue court on Monday sent BRS leader K Kavitha in judicial custody till April 23. After her three days in police custody was completed, Kavitha, the daughter of former Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, was brought before the court by the CBI.

According to the reports, the CBI informed the court at the hearing that the BRS leader did not need to be subjected to any further custodial questioning.

On March 15, Kavitha was taken into custody by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). She was sent to the CBI custody till March 23 after her arrest. On April 11, the CBI took her into custody and placed her in Tihar jail. The BRS leader had requested temporary relief because her son had an exam, and a Delhi court had previously set its judgment for April 9.

Kavitha was called in for questioning several times prior to her arrest, but she skipped at least two of those summonses. Kavitha was questioned three times in the previous year, and her statements were recorded by the central agency in accordance with the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was allegedly paid Rs 100 crore in kickbacks to influence the excise policy in favour of a liquor lobby, according to documents linked to a land deal and WhatsApp conversations that were found on a co-accused Buchi Babu’s phone during Kavitha’s recent three days in CBI custody.

Following AAP leaders Manish Sisodia and Sanjay Singh, the BRS leader was the third popular politician to be taken into custody in connection with the investigation. Kejriwal was the first chief minister in office to be arrested in this matter on March 21.

The Enforcement Directorate claims that Kavitha belonged to the South Group, which gave AAP leaders bribes totaling Rs 100 crore in exchange for nine retail zones under the since-canceled program. The names of other members of the group had also been made public by the investigation agency: Magunta Srinivasulu Reddy, MP for the Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSCRCP); his son Raghav Magunta; Sarath Reddy, founder of the Aurobindo Group; and Sameer Mahendru, a businessman from Delhi.
