Raped 10-Year-Old Girl Aborts Her 20-Week-Old Baby

Later, the victim revealed that she was sexually abused by her stepfather regularly while her mother was away for work. "The board has made a decision to go with the abortion", PGIMS, Rohtak doctor, Prashant Kumar said. Yet, she said, she wanted her husband to be released from jail to be able to run the household and raise their four children.

India's Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act doesn't allow abortion after 20 weeks unless "the termination of such pregnancy is immediately necessary to save the life of the pregnant woman".

Now that the girl has won the rights to abortion, the procedure will take place any time now.

The police have urged the girl to come forward as they could not locate her at the address mentioned in the letter. Her case only came to light last week, by which time she had crossed the 20-week threshold.

Led group invests in development of flying vehicle
It plans to invest 40 million yen ($352,982) in Cartivator , a flying-car project started by a group of its own employees. Following Airbus and Uber, Toyota is the latest large corporation to show interest in flying cars.

However, in this particular case the doctors have chose to abort the foetus as normal delivery is also equally perilous. Police are registering more rape cases than before the laws were strengthened — with 34,651 counted in 2015, compared with 24,157 in 2012 — suggesting that victims are more readily coming forward to report crimes.

Studies have shown that in many cases such a child of ten years, those who perform are people known to the children themselves, especially carers as parents, relatives and teachers.

In recent months India's top court has received a number of petitions from women - including rape survivors and trafficking victims - seeking abortions where pregnancies had gone beyond 20 weeks. The police said the victim's head had been smashed to hide her identity. Her face had also been smashed with a brick, and a vehicle ran over her body so she could not be identified, according to a report in the Hindustan Times. "The victim blaming begins with the police", Kumari said.
