(LifeNews) The girl, only recently discovered to be pregnant, was about 20 weeks pregnant with her unborn child, according to The Express Tribune. Twenty weeks is the legal abortion limit in India; exceptions are allowed if the mother’s life is in danger.
Earlier this week, a panel of doctors in the Asian nation agreed that an abortion should be allowed in the young girl’s case, even if she is past the legal abortion limit, the BBC reports.
Now, The Hindu reports her unborn child has been aborted. Local police said the girl’s mother requested the abortion. It is unclear what the young girl’s wishes were in the matter.
