The termination of an unwanted pregnancy as a medical solution to what essentially is a social problem requires critical consideration of all aspects of the problem, especially in the commercialized culture of the medical profession. In India, medical termination of a pregnancy is a complex multi-dimensional issue. Abortions in India - whether therapeutic or non-therapeutic, clinical or criminal, safe or unsafe, as well as gender-selected - and all such related aspects are examined in this book, which is a compendium of the medical, legal, and social dimensions of induced abortions. The book will be of great interest to women in general and women activists in particular, along with medical professionals and policy makers, as well as both pro-abortion and pro-life groups.
