Realization of Mumbai High Court Decision on Medical Termination of Pregnancy

On 19.09.2016, a Division Bench of the High Court of Bombay delivered a landmark verdict in a suo motu Public Interest Litigation recognizing that imprisoned women, like any other woman, have the right to make choices with regard to motherhood and right to facilities to undergo safe abortions.

The Tata Institute of Social Sciences in collaboration with Centre for Reproductive Rights organized a roundtable conference on 23rd Sept 2017 to analyze the impact of the decision and the extent of its implementation one year after the verdict was delivered.

The discussion engaged experts from all fields and members of the State and Civil Society stakeholders including retired Justice Roshan Dalvi of the Bombay High Court, representatives of the State Health Department, the Prison Administration of Maharashtra, the State Human Rights Commission, lawyers, and activists, like Centre for Law and Policy Research, who are working on the issue of access to safe abortions for women in Maharashtra.
