Force of Law: Deconstructing Abortion Laws with Emphasis on Female Foeticide

Aparna Vijayan


Abstract: There is an enigma surrounding the nature and application of the law. For law to proceed in tandem with the justice concerns, it is important to ensure that its possibilities are discussed within and beyond contexts, as laws serve the purpose also of building and at times, guiding, the moral consciousness of the masses. This paper seeks to engage with and explore this enigma associated in the language and functioning of the law. The attempt also is to explore the acts passed in India towards addressing the question of abortion and the problems present in the assumptions resorted to, in the very formation of the law and related bills. Through a brief exploration of this example, the author seeks to show the challenges one may encounter in addressing specific questions, of cultural and political nature, that the situation continues to pose today.
