Praise Doctors For Granting Rape Victim Her Rights

Target: Dr. Ashok Chauhan, Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences

Goal: Praise India doctors for granting child rape victim an abortion.

A panel of doctors in Rohtak, India, have granted a ten-year-old girl’s plea for an abortion after the girl was raped and impregnated by her stepfather. Over the years, India has had a strict ban on abortions after 20 weeks due to women abusing the procedure, but many petitions have been circulated demanding they make exceptions for rape victims. In the case of this young girl, the doctors have most certainly done the right thing.

According to statistics, India has the highest occurrence of child sexual abuse of boys and girls alike. Many of these cases have gone unchecked or unknown, and in cases that were discovered the law stood on the side of the abuser. Thankfully, the country is finally seeking to correct this. The doctors who granted the young girl her right to abort have played a big role in this endeavor, being an example of the society putting the welfare of children first.

It is small victories like this that must be cherished and appreciated. Sign this petition to thank the Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences for making an important exception to their abortion laws for the sake of an innocent girl.


Dear Dr. Chauhan,

Thank you, and your panel of doctors, for granting a young girl the right to an abortion despite the laws forbidding the procedure after a certain point. Despite the law being in place for a good reason, it neglected to consider rape victims who may not have even known they were pregnant until it was too late.

As India works to stop its high ratio of child sexual abuse and the backwards laws taking the side of the rapist over the victim, your decision to grant this girl her rights is a huge step forward and a major contribution to the future welfare of India’s children. Thank you for prioritizing the welfare and feelings of this young girl above all else.
