Now understand the whole matter in a sequential manner.
In fact, a 20-year-old engineering student had filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking permission to have an abortion. The girl told in the petition that she came to know about her pregnancy after 7 months. The petitioner is not married, hence her family is not ready to accept the child.

AIIMS advised not to have abortion
The Supreme Court had sought the advice of the doctors of AIIMS on this matter. The doctors told that the pregnancy has been more than 29 weeks, hence abortion is neither justified nor safe. However, the petitioner was talking about not keeping the child with her.

Additional Solicitor General Aishwarya Bhati became emotional during the hearing of the case. He appealed to the court that he was ready to adopt the child, but should not consider killing him. Please tell that on the orders of the court, Aishwarya is in constant contact with the student.

Seeing the seriousness of the matter, the CJI called the judges and people associated with the case to his chamber at 11 am on Thursday. There was a discussion here for 40 minutes, in which all the three judges in the bench were in favor of not getting the abortion done. During this, SG Tushar Mehta also said that he also wants to adopt a child once and orphan children are everyone’s responsibility.

The CJI said that he had discussed the matter at home as well.
