Abortion is the right of the pregnant woman in India unlike many countries like Ireland where abortion is not legal. Many states in America also do not allow aborting the foetus. On September 30 this year which also happens to be "World Safe Abortion Day", Supreme Court of India passed the judgement that it is unconstitutional to discriminate between a married and unmarried female when it comes to going for abortion upto 24 weeks of pregnancy. Due to the adverse sex ratio, India implemented the Preconception and Prenatal Diagnostic Techniques Act in the year 1994 to prevent female foeticide. Checks and balances have been created under this act between the right of a woman to abort the unwanted pregnancy and the practice of selective abortion of the female foetus. Pregnancy upto 12 weeks can be aborted by the choice of the pregnant woman at any registered centre under the MTP Act. Pregnancy of 12 weeks and more but less than 24 weeks can be aborted at special MTP Centres where 2 or more gynaecologists would certify the reasons for aborting the pregnancy. Pregnancy of more than 24 weeks cannot be aborted in India.
Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP) or Abortion as it is more commonly known can be carried out through the use of medicines which can be prescribed only by a registered gynaecologist in cases of early pregnancy. However if the pregnancy exceeds 8-9 weeks as established by an ultrasound study then the pregnancy can be aborted by a surgical procedure called Dilatation and Curettage (D&C). In this procedure the patient is admitted in day care at IVY Hospital, Mohali by one of the best and senior gynaecologist Dr Balvin Kaur and the foetus is aborted using medicines. Dr Balvin Kaur at IVY Hospital, Mohali then clears the uterus of any products of conception by dialating the cervix and using a curette to clear the uterus. The procedure is carried out under anesthesia and the patient is discharged from the hospital on the same day. Dr Balvin Kaur is one of the best gynaecologists at IVY Hospital, Mohali, Punjab who is trained in performing all laparoscopic surgeries independently with more than 99% success rate.
