Abstract:
Medical Termination of pregnancy, popularly called abortion implies expulsion of fetus during first 12 to 28 weeks of pregnancy. Though an intentional act of a women in which the consent of spouse may or may not be involved, has historically been a highly controversial issue. The controversies revolve around the juxtaposed positions held by the society. These emanated from the realm of religion and humanism on the one hand and the legal and health frame work of a society on the other. The third issue that has become the centre of focus by the feminists is the question of women's right. The latter itself has raised many issues of social and legal nature, especially in the wake of rising number of abortions all over the world, especially the ones conducted under unsafe conditions and that of the unwed and the teenage girls. In view of the emerging divergent concerns, this paper inquiries into the nature of society's response to abortion in historical perspective, and the causes and conditions of abortion would-wide. The last part presents the implications of abortion for the society at large in the form of conclusions.
