Writ petition seeks ban on unnecessary C-sections

A Supreme Court lawyer yesterday filed a writ petition with the High Court seeking its directive on the government to ban unnecessary caesarean section for delivering babies at hospitals and clinics.

Barrister Syed Sayedul Haque Suman submitted the petition praying to the HC to issue a rule asking the government to explain why its inaction to stop unnecessary C-section of pregnant mothers should not be declared illegal.

Citing newspaper reports, he said 77 percent of C-sections conducted at hospitals and clinics last year were unnecessary. In most cases, hospital and clinic authorities compel expecting mothers to have C-section for financial benefits.

In the petition, Barrister Suman said if unnecessary C-sections cannot be stopped it will turn into a serious crisis.
