26-week MTP only if doctors say baby won’t be born alive: Bombay HC

In an unusual and conditional order, the Bombay HC permitted a woman to medically terminate her 26 weeks pregnancy only if the doctors confirm that the baby may not be born alive after the procedure. “In case the doctors are of the opinion that the baby may not be born alive at the time of terminating pregnancy, the petitioner is permitted to terminate the pregnancy,” the bench directed on Friday.
