Abortion in India is not allowed after 20 weeks. Before that, it can be done for a valid reason.It can be done with medicines only under supervision of a registered gynecologist till 7 weeks, and surgically till 12 weeks.Beyond that, it is only done if 2 gynecologist s approve of the reason and give consent, and procedure is like labour(as in normal delivery)
