Don’t you just love India’s Supreme Court?!
Not only has the Supreme Court of India extended abortion rights to all women, declaring abortion a fundamental right; they have also said that a married woman’s forceful pregnancy can be considered “marital rape”.
Hooray for the Indians! Now let those cowboys in Texas get with the Pro-Choice programme.
In the meantime, here’s what you do my dear married Indian sisters:
Whenever you sleep with your husband always say that you do not consent to sex that leads to pregnancy. That way you can cry “Marital rape!” if you get pregnant; as you would have become (as far as Indian abortion law is concerned) “pregnant as a result of non-consensual sexual intercourse performed upon [you] by [your] husband”.
What a great wheeze! But do remember to have a tape recorder or a reliable witness at your bedside at all times.
