RELIGIOUS VIEWS ON ABORTION

Islam: Imam Nabeel Khan from the Islamic Center of Central Missouri said abortion is not allowed in the Muslim faith except in circumstances when the mother’s life is in danger, the child is known to suffer from severe disease or disability, or the pregnancy was a result of incest or rape. The abortion must be performed within 120 days – the day on which Muslims believe the soul enters the body – or it is considered a grave sin. He added this view is that of more mainstream Muslims and that religious scholars vary on their opinion of when abortion is permissible.
