The Law on Menstrual Therapies
Lancet. 1982 Aug 21; 2(8295): 422-423.
Misunderstandings about the origins of criminal laws in several Commonwealth Asian nations are affecting the provision of abortion services in countries such as India, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and Pakistan. There is a particular need to clarify the legal status of menstrual therapies, which are procedures for evacuating the uterus around the expected time of menstruation, often before there is evidence of pregnancy. Contrary to common belief, the laws of many Commonwealth Asian countries are based on the Indian Penal Code, which accommodates the use of these therapies, rather than the English system, which may not.
