HMA is gender Neutral and was not having intent and object starting from Art. 14 till 21 series so her defence is bald. 

2. Art. 21 defenses is a weak defence in the light of recent SC judgment on right to terminate pregnancy of a Mumbai based wife. 

3. If the consent of husband there in previous three termination of pregnancies of wife then husbands counter divorce (alternate prayer) is perhaps the weakest I see here. 

4. The only strong point for husband is filing S. 9 HMA here. Better ask him to delete the counter prayer seeking divorce too in the event S. 9 HMA fails.
