Abstract

Abortion is legal in India, under certain conditions and with prescribed regulations as regards to the personnel and place where it can be performed. The medical fraternity has to strictly adhere to these guidelines. The present study aimed to ascertain the level of knowledge regarding abortion practices and laws among educated sections of the society namely medical and non medical students. We observed that though medical students are more aware as compared to non medical students, the level of knowledge still needs to increase at the undergraduate level as well as awareness among the general public as regards to safe abortion practices must be increased.
