Critical Reflection Paper On Denial Of Abortion By Indian Courts To Minor Rape Victims

Sana Myiesha Riyas, IFIM Law School


A woman’s reproductive rights should lie solely in her hands and not anyone else’s but sadly that’s not the case in our country. Anti-abortion laws and judges who deny requests for abortions are more than just an offence to a girl’s rights on her own body but they also indicate the surreptitious misogyny that is found in our society. A woman’s right to her sexuality, reproductive health, and fertility should not be deprived in any situation, whatsoever. The topic of abortion has always been disputed with each country having different laws and opinions with respect to this matter. In this paper, the author will be discussing about the denial of abortion in India with specific reference to minor rape victims.
