Unmarried Woman Can't Be Denied Abortion, Says Supreme Court

In a hearing, the Supreme Court said, a woman can't be denied an abortion because of her marital status. The matter came into the Apex Court, after the Delhi HC refused abortion permission to a 25-year-old woman, saying it amounts to killing a foetus. The Top Court reviewed the petition and rule out HC orders, and directed Delhi AIIMS to conduct medical tests, conducting abortion, if no life-risks.
