A woman has moved the Bombay High Court seeking permission to abort her 27-week-old foetus, which suffers from heart, brain and gastrointestinal anomalies.
The court then constitutes a team of experts to examine the woman and asks it to submit a report.
The court has directed the medical board of J.J. Hospital to examine the mental and physical condition of the woman.
Ms. Kakalia said, “Taking the court’s permission to terminate a pregnancy takes up a lot of time.
Such committees in the State will be formed in Pune, Thane, Nashik, Kolhapur, Aurangabad, Latur and Akola.
