Anup Choudhury started this petition to Honorable Supreme Court Of India

My daughter was 12 weeks in her mother's womb and was advised for a pre-natal genetic testing, when we undergone the test by a fetal medicine specialist, who told us that there is some possible birth defect with signs of down syndrome in our to be born child, so the doctor advised for further invasive testing or abort the baby at that point because in India legally allowed time of abortion is only up to 20 weeks. If we don't take a quick decision, child may born with down syndrome. As our child was precious for us after having repeated miscarriages of my wife in past, we strongly disagreed against the doctor's advice to abort the baby, and firmly agreed to continue with the pregnancy whatever it may happen. My wife continued with the pregnancy with much of mental stress because of such a negative counseling by fetal medicine specialist doctor. While in due course of time my wife delivered a healthy baby by C-section. She was totally healthy at birth with APGAR score 9/10. Today she is 6 months old and growing healthy both physically and all other milestones are being achieved as a normal child without any deformity and mental retardation. Should  we had taken a decision to abort her in 12 week, it could have been a grave mistake to kill a such an adorable healthy baby daughter who is so loving to us. She carries a million possibilities for the future generation as a precious child. 

Many will take a wrong decision to abort their unborn child if the pre-natal tests and counselling goes in wrong direction as could happen in our case, could we have not taken a risk with the doctors opinion, as stated above. We strongly  advocate to stop misusing pre-natal genetic testing as a tool to kill innocent babies in the womb in name of anomaly, birth defects etc. Our appeal to honorable Supreme court of India to bring legal laws to stop this, as was done to prevent female feticide by banning on sex-detection in prenatal testing including ultrasound etc.
