Abortion became legal in India in 1971 under certain circumstances. The bill, “Medical Termination and Pregnancy Act” was passed by the parliament keeping in mind the progress the medical science had in the field to make the abortions safe and its side effects not life-threatening.
The medical termination of pregnancy can only be done (by law) if there is:
While the abortion laws differ from country to country, in India, it can be performed on certain circumstances until 20 weeks of pregnancy. But there are few exceptional cases, where the court may allow a termination post 20 weeks.

There are many ways depending on the type of pills given to terminate the pregnancy. These pills are given several days before the actual abortion.
Medical termination of pregnancy works best in the first 7 weeks that is 49 days of pregnancy.
In the procedure, the doctor administers a pill orally or via injection on the first day. This blocks the female hormone progesterone and decreases the lining of the uterus which results in preventing the embryo from attaching and growing in the womb.

After the bleeding stops (mostly a week) the healthcare specialist asks the patient to come for a physical examination to ensure that the abortion procedure is complete and to see if there are any complications associated with it.
