Court Allows 13-Year-Old to Abort Her 32-Week-Old Unborn Baby

ultrasound4d38

The Supreme Court of India gave a 13-year-old rape survivor permission to abort her late-term, viable unborn baby Wednesday.

The young girl from Mumbai is 32-weeks pregnant with her unborn baby, far past the point of viability and the country’s 20-week legal abortion limit. The man who allegedly raped her, a co-worker of her father, has been arrested.

Abortions are illegal after 20 weeks of pregnancy in India. However, women increasingly have been petitioning the high court for permission to abort their unborn babies after 20 weeks in cases involving fetal abnormalities or sexual assault.

NDTV reports the high court gave the girl permission to have a late-term abortion after a panel of doctors said she would suffer agony and trauma if she gives birth to a live child.

“It has been emotionally draining for the girl’s parents as their child is pregnant and they are unable to cope up with this fact,” said Sneha Mukherjee, a lawyer for the girl, to the news agency AFP.

The young teen’s abortion is scheduled for Friday, but she will be admitted to the hospital Thursday to begin the multiple-day procedure, the Economic Times reports. At 32 weeks of pregnancy, her unborn baby is basically fully formed and highly likely to survive outside the womb if born alive.

Late-term abortions also are risky and can be deadly for the mother as well as her unborn child.

The 13-year-old girl’s parents said they were not aware of the abuse or their young daughter’s pregnancy until about a month ago. They said they took her to the doctor because she was rapidly gaining weight, and they thought she was having problems with her thyroid.

Gynecologist Dr Nikhil Datar told the BBC: “She was brought to me by her parents on 9 August. They suspected she had a thyroid problem or some other medical condition because she was gaining weight. The scan showed that she was 27 weeks pregnant so I informed the police.”

Datar said the young girl understands that she is pregnant, though she does not comprehend the full impact of her condition. It is unclear what the girl’s wishes are regarding her unborn baby.

Datar recommended a late-term abortion, arguing that the girl’s pelvis is not fully developed and childbirth could cause her physical and mental trauma. However, the doctor did not explain how the abortion will be less risky than childbirth.

A late-term abortion is a very risky, multiple day procedure that can kill the mother as well as her unborn baby. On the first day, the abortionist typically injects a poison into the unborn baby’s heart or head to kill them. They also begin to dilate the mother’s cervix to prepare for childbirth. On the third or fourth day, they induce labor and the mother gives birth to her dead baby.
