Woman can get abortion without consent of husband- Supreme Court
The Supreme Court has ruled that a woman does not have to take the permission of her husband for getting an abortion.
The top court gave this ruling in case of a man who was seeking compensation from his wife for undergoing an abortion without his consent.
The court clarified that an adult woman has the right to terminate her pregnancy if she wishes to do so.
Even a woman who is mentally challenged, has the right to end her pregnancy.
In the case being heard, the court ruled that the husband and wife were not living together anymore due to mutual differences and the wife was not liable to take the husband’s consent for abortion.
