In India, 8 women die every day due to unsafe abortions. According to the UNFPA report, 67% of unsafe abortions take place in India. In fact, there is a lack of strict law in the country and also people lack awareness about it. But now with the decision given by the Supreme Court regarding abortion, there may be a significant reduction in unsafe abortions in the coming days.
Abortion is extremely rare in a region where the Church has held cultural and political sway for centuries. Previously, it was allowed on-demand only in Communist Cuba, tiny Uruguay and parts of Mexico. The fiercely contentious vote was held at 4:00 a.m. after a marathon debate that lasted through the night.
