India allows abortion for 10-year-old rape victim

A panel of doctors chose to abort the foetus of the 10-year-old girl, who was found to be 5 months pregnant after allegedly being raped repeatedly by her stepfather.

On Saturday night, a young woman was abducted while returning to her home in the New Delhi suburb of Gurgaon and gang raped by three men in a moving vehicle before being set free the next morning, police said.

The court's decision comes a day after a medical board examined the girl at the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences in Rohtak district in India's northern state of Haryana.

"We are examining the female to determine the best method for abortion".

India's Supreme Court has received several petitions from rape victims in recent months requesting terminations and each case has been referred to a panel of medical experts.
