BEED, India, September 26, 2012, ( – The abortionists who fed baby girls’ bodies to dogs to hide the evidence of sex-selective abortions faced a judge this week – who said she should be allowed to post bail and go home.

Dr. Saraswati Munde and her husband, Dr. Sudam Munde, carried out a botched abortion that cost a 30-year-old her life. Vijaymala Pattekar, a sugarcane worker, procured a second trimester abortion from the couple, although Indian law allows abortion only until 20 weeks. 


The judge strictly warned the doctor not to pressure witnesses, something human rights activists claim allowed the couple to escape previous charges. She may not resume medical practice and is to appear in the local prison in Parli every other day.

A member of the anti-gender bias charity Lek Ladki Abhiyan shocked the world after exposing how the Mundes dispose of the baby girls they abort by feeding them to dogs.

The judge said Dr. Munde deserved to be released, as she he had spent 105 days in jail after the May 18 death. However, the couple will remain jailed because of a sex-selective abortion charge.

The couple practices in Maharashtra, the Indian state with the greatest number of “missing” girls. Officials there have asked the national government to treat sex-selective abortions as murder.   

The Mundes and 15 others face charges in Pattekar’s death.
