Rape victim, 10, gives birth after being denied an abortion

Her parents got to know about the child’s pregnancy when she complained of stomach ache

The 10-year-old rape victim, whose abortion plea was rejected by the Supreme Court on health grounds delivered a baby girl on Thursday at a Chandigarh hospital.

She was raped repeatedly over a seven-month period by her uncle who has been arrested.

Her parents have told her that she had a stone in her stomach and had undergone surgery to remove it, PTI said.

"The minor girl delivered a baby through C-section this morning".

The 10-year-old's pregnancy first became apparent when she complained of stomach pains to her parents. The victim's counsel had earlier told the court that she deserved compensation from the government as she had gone to Patna Medical College and Hospital to get her pregnancy terminated in the 17th week. By then it was too late for her to abort the foetus.

The family, did not approach the authorities about the girl's pregnancy until the 26th or 27th week, said Alakh Alok Srivastava, a lawyer who represented the girl's family, to CNN in a previous interview. A case of kidnapping, wrongful restraint and rape has been registered.The incident comes days after a 29-year-old woman was stalked and chased on the streets of Chandigarh by the son of Haryana BJP chief.

The infant will be put up for adoption once she is healthy enough. Abortion rights activists tried to get an Indian court to allow the exception, arguing that abortion procedures are much safer than they were when the 20-week law was enacted more than 40 years ago. At the time, the BBC reported a team of doctors decided the girl was not physically or emotionally fit to give birth to her baby.

The woman then moved Patna High Court through YMNA in April, but the court refused to allow the termination after a medical board examined and opined that it could be risky to her life.

However, the India Supreme Court overturned his ruling in 2015 and allowed the unborn baby to be aborted.
