Rape Victim Can’t Be Forced To Bear Rapist’s Child

Sundarlal vs The State of MP & others

Madhya Pradesh HC

06/12/2017

W.P. No.20961/2017

About/from the judgment:

If the conditions enumerated in the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act, 1971, are fulfilled, the pregnancy of victim can be terminated, the court observed.

 

The anguish and the humiliation, which the victim is suffering daily, will certainly cause a grave injury to her mental health. Not only this, the child will also suffer mental anguish in case the lady gives birth to a child.

 

If the Committee comes to the conclusion that pregnancy of the victim can be terminated in consonance with Section 3 or Section 5 of the Act, the respondents shall undertake the exercise of terminating the pregnancy as per law forthwith.

 

There is a great urgency in this matter, considering the duration of pregnancy. Thus, it shall be the duty of the respondents to ensure strict compliance of this order within stipulated time.
