Abstract

Women’s movement have led to liberalization of rights of women. A women’s body and her reproductive system is her own right. But this is a pretence when we talk of women’s right in regards to abortion. Amongst the moral and legal debates of abortion, the legislature and activists forget the rights of a women and her decision of abortion. Her privacy is violated and denied. The subject of her right over her own body and the choice she makes is condemned and over shadowed by a false sense of justice.
In American Jurisprudence, had legalized abortion in the United States of America and secured the rights of women over their own body. But today there is a demand to over-rule this judgement by the anti-abortion law activists. It is sad to deduce that the courts that have supported the rights of women are now once again faced with the jurisprudential question of morality and law in regards to abortion laws.
The research analyses the dimension of feminism in relation to comparative studies of the present statutes governing abortion laws in USA and India.
