Should it be Personal decision or lawmakers?

Today something caught my attention while reading. It just said Nikita's abortion plea. Went on to read that Nikita and her husband found out that their unborn child has a congenital heart block & will not have a normal life. It must have been such a heartbreaking news for them to realize this. And to have made a big decision of not continuing with the pregnency. But wait..!! there is a legal twist here. The foetus is already 24wks, and our laws allow termination until 20 wks. Mehta's are already made a concious decision & trying their best to convince judge to rule in favour of them. When there are so many illegal abortions are going on, many of them for the reason that they are carrying a girl foetus,... this couple have something else to worry about. If this child comes into this world and have to suffer all it's life,..........

Isn't it time, our law makers consider all aspects and decide quickly.... actually, to let the parents to take the decision & not the ones who are not in this heartbreaking position..

The justice has gone against their wishes. Saw them on TV yesterday. It's unfortunate.

You must have read the news today that she gave birth to a stillborn child... very unfortunate. However, it was done at a small private clinic and hence something still fishy about the whole case!
