need to amend Abortion Law

In this article I don't understand why is there a need to amend abortion law in case of rape cases. The article mentions:

How India’s Abortion Laws Actively Take Away Individual Choice from Rape Survivors?

But MRTP gives option to all to abort within 20 weeks, during which a raped victim too can abort. Can anyone please explain?
