    of the population’s socioeconomic level, religion or culture.

    Following review article discusses reproductive rights with

    respect to Indian context focusing on socio economic and cultural

    aspects. Also discusses sensitization of government and judicial

    agencies in protecting the reproductive rights with special focus
