The term abortion is defined as an unexpected and an untimely delivery with an intention to destroy the foetus. It may be procured at any time before the natural birth of the child. In India, our substantive criminal law and the special laws relating to abortions made it an offence invoking criminal liability subject to the exceptions expressly provided in such laws. The purpose of my research in this area is to conduct a study about the existing laws in India and in the USA and understand how far India, over a period of time, has been able to protect the rights of their women. The research also revolves around the sub-topic of protecting the rights of unborn children in both nations. To get a deeper insight into the history and the growth, the researcher has looked into several case laws in both nations and amendments made to the existing laws.
