10-yr-old Chandigarh rape survivor delivers a girl 18.8.2017 DNA: Money
A 10-year-old rape survivor in Chandigarh — refused permission by the Supreme Court in July to abort her 32-week pregnancy — delivered a baby on Thursday, but remained unaware of the new life that she has given birth to. "We told her that she was operated upon for a stone in her stomach. She is too young to understand," said doctors at the Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) in Chandigarh's Sector 32. Both the mother and child are healthy and stable, they said. The court had on July 29 denied her an abortion after doctors said it could be a threat to her life. She was 30-week pregnant when a family court rejected her plea for abortion on July 15. The girl had a C-section. "She is too young to bear labour pain and her pelvic bones are not strong enough to support a normal delivery," the doctors said. The survivor had also been operated for a heart ailment in the past and was on medication, which compounded the risks involved. The girl's family, including her labourer father, refused to see the ...

'Wrong to ask for consent in abortion' 17.8.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Doctors should be "absolutely careful" and "not overemphasise" the consent of guardians in deciding the plea to terminate pregnancy of a mentally retarded woman, the Supreme Court said. The court directed the Bihar government to pay Rs 10 lakh as compensation to the 35-year-old woman, who had to undergo tremendous mental torture due to the rape and the resultant pregnancy and had her plea to terminate the pregnancy rejected by the state. A bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra said state authorities should have been more equipped to assist the woman, especially since she decided to exercise her statutory right to terminate the pregnancy. More over, the child is likely to be HIV +ve, the judge mentioned. "That apart, as is seen, the state in a way contested the matter before the High Court," Justice Misra said.

The 10-year old rape victim, whose pleas for abortion was turned down by the Apex Court recently, delivered a healthy baby girl this morning at a multi-specialty government hospital in Chandigarh. Doctors went in for Caesarean section as the girl was too young to undergo a normal delivery. The minor mother is stable. The victim was raped for months by her maternal uncle, who has two daughters of the age of the victim. It was during the advance stages of pregnancy that the girl complained of stomach pain, which was later discovered that she was pregnant. By then it was too late for her to abort the foetus. Given the complexities of the case and the tender age of the minor, it was decided not to reveal to the girl that she had delivered a baby, sources said, adding that all that she was been informed is that she would be operated for stones in the stomach. The newborn is premature and was not shown to the mother. The family of the minor girl want to put the newborn for adoption. Doctors said the pelvic ...
