The Supreme Court has turned down an abortion plea filed by a 10 year old rape survivor. The survivor who is 32 weeks pregnant had moved the SC seeking permission to terminate her pregnancy. The court observed that the medical report that it had sought for says that it would endanger the life of both her and the child. On July 24, the court had asked the Chandigarh Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research to examine the girl and report if the pregnancy could be terminated.
