Girls Count Coalition on Declining Child Sex Ratio and Pratigya Campaign for Gender Equality and Safe Abortion organised a joint consultation on 12th December 2019 at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi to deliberate on the conflation between the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act, 1971 and the Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques Act, 1994. The joint consultation was held in the midst of concerns arising out of skewed sex ratio at birth and poor access to safe and legal abortion in the country. It aimed to clarify the two laws and the prevalent confusion between the two issues.
