“In theory, India’s position on abortion is progressive. In practice, the law is flawed and punishes women”, to what extent do you think the statement is right in saying so about woman’s autonomy with respect to reproductive rights? Analyse. 10 marks

Mentor’s comment-

  • In the intro briefly narrate the position of women with respect to reproductive rights in general in the Indian societal setup.
  • In the body explain why India’s progressive stance on abortion is not practical as it doesn’t allow women the
    autonomy to decide. Discuss the features of Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP) Act and highlight the lack of objectivity in it; The Act treats MTP as a public health issue, focusing more on its impact on family planning and potential criminal proceedings against medical professionals, while ignoring women and their right to choose. Discuss in detail the causative factors of lack of such rights to women. Suggest what needs to be done.
  • Conclude with suitable solutions.
