Discuss the changes made by the Medical Termination of Pregnancy (Amendment) Bill, 2021. Do you with the view that the amended act takes into account women’s bodily autonomy? 10 marks

Mentor’s comment-
  • The intro mention the recent passage of the bill in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.
  • In the body, mention the changes made by the amendment act such as increasing the duration for termination of pregnancy and changing the term from married woman or her husband to any woman or her partner etc. In the issue of taking into account bodily autonomy mention that the act stipulates conditions for pregnancy which results in allowing pregnancy only when needed and not when the women want it. The bill also has an ableist approach by prescribing foetal abnormalities as a ground for termination of pregnancy.
  • Conclude by mentioning the need to take into account the bodily autonomy of the women in the matters of termination of pregnancy.
