OUR CORRESPONDENT / NEW DELHI

The Supreme Court allowed two minor rape victims from Delhi and Bengaluru to abort their foetus. The court observed that the medical boards have said termination of pregnancy was permissible in these two cases.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra perused the reports of the medical boards of the AIIMS and Bangalore Medical College and Research Institute, where both the minors
were examined in pursuance to its orders.

The medical report from AIIMS said, there was no risk involved in aborting the foetus of a 13-year-old girl, who is in her 23rd week of pregnancy. The medical board of the Bengaluru hospital said that the 24-week-old foetus of the 17-year-old girl can be aborted.

The bench said that medical expense of the process of termination of pregnancy would be borne by the respective states.

The Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP) Act prohibits abortion of a foetus after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
