Dr Neeta Warty, who helped deliver the first baby in India to be born via a uterus transplant, on the process and its ethical implications. A baby was born from the same womb that her mother was. Doesn’t that sound like science fiction?” asks Dr Neeta Warty, as she heads towards the waiting area just outside the operating theatre at Breach Candy Hospital. Dr Warty has just laparoscopically removed a fibroid the size of four newborns — and one that weighed 9.28 kg — from the uterus of a 40-year-old woman.

Writer NS Madhavan, who came out in support of her, said the decision to do a background check was discriminatory and unacceptable. “Make [the check either] compulsory for all who want to go to Sabarimala, or none.

She has reportedly contested election on a … [Read more...] about The heroes of Sabarimala: Here are five women who took on the might of patriarchy
