All women, married or unmarried, have the right to safe and legal abortion up to 24 weeks of pregnancy: Supreme Court

,

The Supreme Court on Thursday said that unmarried women also have the right to abort a pregnancy between 20-24 weeks after conception. It asserted that all women were entitled to safe and legal abortion, and that discrimination between married and unmarried women was unconstitutional.

A bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud said that it is unconstitutional to exclude unmarried women, who become pregnant after a live-in relationship, from the laws on medical termination of pregnancy. The Supreme Court said that all women are entitled to safe and legal abortion. The decision of this matter will be uploaded later.

It added that the rights of reproductive autonomy give an unmarried woman the same rights as a married woman. The Supreme Court noted that the 2021 amendment to the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act does not differentiate between married and unmarried women.
