    Supreme Court allows plea to abort foetus without skull

    Supreme CourtPune: The Supreme Court today allowed a Pune-based woman to abort her 24-week foetus, which does not have a skull or a brain.

    The apex court relied on the report of the medical board of the Pune-based B J Government Medical College that there was no medical treatment for the anomaly.

    “We consider it appropriate and in the interest of justice to allow termination of pregnancy,” a bench comprising Justices S A Bobde and L Nageswara Rao said.

    The 20-year-old woman was examined at the Pune hospital. The doctors said in their report that there was a “complete absence of brain and skull” of the foetus and survival rate was minimal.
