NewsBy: PTI | Updated: October 7 2017 9:16 pm Brazil won their encounter against Spain at U-17 FIFA World Cup match in Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium in Kochi on Saturday (Source: PTI) Top News A dominant Brazil made a strong statement of their top title contender status with a 2-1 victory over Spain in a Group D marquee clash of the FIFA U-17 World Cup here today In a much-anticipated encounter in front of a sell-out crowd Spain made a flying start and took the lead in the fifth minute through an own goal by Brazil defender Wesley but soon lost the plot as the Brazilians turned the table on them Brazil the overwhelming favourites of the packed stadium took control of the match just after conceding the goal with far more possession and attacking They scored through Lincoln (25th minute) and Paulinho (45+1) The absence of Vinicius Junior was not felt as Brazil’s attacking trio of Lincoln Paulinho and Brenner played better than their Spanish counterparts Alan and Marcos Antonio gave the trio enough support Spain who had five players from the famous La Masia academy and four from Real Madrid academy were hit hard by the high humidity of Kochi while the Brazilians were able to cope with the situation as they had been in India for more than 10 days The fast-paced and open match between the champion sides of South America and Europe initially promised to be a goal fest but it was not to be The neat exchange of passes swift movement in attack and counter-attack were all there to see though Spain began the match brightly pressing hard in the attacking third and drew the first blood in the fifth minute Ferran Torres got the better of his marker at the right flank and sent an inch-perfect low cross for Mohammed Moukhliss to send the ball in the direction of the post The last touch however was that of Wesley and an own goal was awarded against his name Spain dominated for a few minutes after the first goal but Brazil soon began to impose themselves on the match Paulinho drilled in a low shot in the 18th minute which the Spain goalkeeper Alvaro Fernandez deflected off his hands and Lincoln missed the target off the rebound It was a matter of time before Brazil restored parity as Paulinho Lincoln and Brenner began to have clear looks at the Spain goal which fell in the 25th minute A brilliant grounded cross from the left by Brenner found Lincoln in the perfect position inside the box and he slotted the ball home in his second attempt Then in the 34th minute Spain defender Mateu Jaume was taken off due to dehydration and was replaced by Victor Perea Gomez Brazil took the lead in the first half injury time through Paulinho Marcos Antonio’s brilliant lobbed pass found the forward in a perfect position to fire it in and make it 2 -1 for the South American side Spain did better in the second session and pressed hard for the equaliser but Brazil defence stood firm It was end-to-end action in most part of the second session Spain looked for goals but Brazil hit them on the counter at will Marcos Antonio took on his marker and beat him for pace on one such opportunity but his cross for Paulinho in the middle was cut out by the Spanish goalkeeper For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsThe Supreme Court’s order passed yesterday in the case of “Ms X” v Union of India is a cop-out on an important issue — the constitutional right of a woman to have autonomy over her own body in the context of a pregnancy While it has allowed the petitioner to terminate her pregnancy on the basis of medical advice that pointed out that her life would be in danger if the pregnancy was continued the Court refused to engage with the larger questions that the petition raised – that the provisions of the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act 1971 (MTP Act) Under the MTP Act as it stands abortions are allowed in India only if medical advice suggests that they are necessary Prior to twenty weeks this requires one or two doctors to opine (depending on what stage the pregnancy is in) that continuing the pregnancy would cause grave mental and physical harm to the woman or that the foetus would be born severely mentally or physically handicapped The Act has a wide definition of what constitutes “mental harm” – it includes pregnancies caused as a result of rape and failure of birth control devices Beyond twenty weeks though a pregnancy may only be terminated if the life of the woman is under threat and only an immediate abortion is necessary to save her life In the case of “Ms X” whose pregnancy had gone beyond 23 weeks it was this provision of the law that was pressed into service by the court to permit her to carry out her abortion She alleged that the pregnancy was a result of an act of rape perpetrated on her and sought to terminate it for this reason The Supreme Court set up a medical board which opined independently that the pregnancy posed a risk to her health and for that reason could be justifiably terminated in accordance with the MTP Act In its order the Court permitted her to do so Does the law take into account a woman’s agency Yet for all its good intent and outcome the Supreme Court did not address the larger constitutional challenge to the MTP Act itself — a task that required it to properly engage with and understand the scope of a woman’s right over her own body To understand the problems with the MTP Act as it stands it is important to keep in mind the situation in which it was brought it into force Prior to 1971 abortions were criminalised under Section 312 of the Indian Penal Code 1860 and notwithstanding the 1971 Act continue to be criminalised as of date In fact even the pregnant woman could be found guilty if she self-aborts the child she is carrying This position was considered unsatisfactory and on the basis of the recommendations of the Abortion Study Committee in 1966 the MTP Act was introduced and passed in Parliament All that the 1971 Act does however is to provide a clearer set of guidelines and time frames within which a doctor carrying out an abortion was protected from criminal sanction under the law It leaves us therefore in a situation where the question of whether an abortion is to be undertaken or not is left purely in the hands of a medical practitioner with no say for the woman who is actually pregnant The woman who is actually carrying the foetus has no agency over her body under Indian law It is this problematic approach of the law in India that should have been examined by the Supreme Court to see if this is not contrary to the constitutional right to life and liberty not to mention the right to privacy of a woman The MTP Act itself came into force two years before the landmark judgment of the US Supreme Court in Roe v Wade in 1973 which revolutionised the discourse on abortion in that country In holding that law could not absolutely prevent a woman from getting an abortion prior to the third semester the US Supreme Court sought to strike a balance between the rights of the woman over her own body and the interests of the state in the birth of the foetus It struck down a whole raft of State and local laws which had criminalised abortions in various parts of the United States as being in violation of the right to privacy without due process protected under the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution Roe v Wade has been subsequently modified by the Supreme Court in Planned Parenthood v Casey where the legality of the abortion law is now linked to the viability of the foetus rather than the rigid third trimester test laid down in Roe v Wade Unlike the US debate on abortion which has separated itself into neat camps which are “pro-life” or “pro-choice” the abortion debate in India would be meaningless if it did not take into account the very real problem of female foeticide The MTP Act itself doesn’t deal with female foeticide and it is the Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (Regulation and Prevention of Misuse) Act 1994 (PCPNDT Act) which seeks to prevent sex-selection by making it difficult to determine the sex of the unborn foetus That this framework has been unsuccessful (or at least not had the intended effect) is seen in the low sex-ratio in children between the ages of 0-5 more so in certain north India States which are experiencing economic growth enabling access to the latest sex-determination technology Notwithstanding efforts to step up enforcement and bring offending clinics and doctors to book (including the Supreme Court’s misguided efforts to get search engines to comply with the PCPNDT Act) there’s still little discernible movement in putting an end to female foeticide in India Perhaps the entire framework of the law needs to be re-examined and re-thought The abortion law in India as it stands is therefore the worst of all worlds: it deprives the woman of choice and control over her body while at the same time failing to prevent female foeticide This legal framework has never received serious judicial scrutiny and by not going into the questions raised in “Ms X’s” petition the Supreme Court has shirked from an important duty The questions of choice autonomy over one’s body and how to balance these against the issue of female foeticide have to be debated now in the public if we need to come out of this
