In India, Pregnancy can be terminated till 20 weeks under Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act, 1971. After that, either one has to go for illegal abortion or forcefully have to bear the child. women has the right of abortion but with a limitation and this limitation has caused not only serious social, legal but as well as reproductive health issue in women especially about their right for safe abortion. Abortion services should be available to all women and girls to the fullest extent that the law allows.

My paper will focus on the reproductive health issue of the woman where abortion is required as a protective measure for her health and wellbeing of the family as well as provide awareness regarding abendment of MTP Act 2021 about the for the wellbeing of her and her family.
