Resorting to abortion for fear of the child having AIDS
Q: What is the ruling on
performing abortion due to the existence of a high probability that the embryo might be infected with Aids?
It is impermissible to carry out abortion, and the existence of a probability that the embryo might be infected with Aids does not allow doing this. However, the Committee recommends the woman and her husband to have good faith in Allah, and to ask Him to keep the woman and her baby safe from any illness. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
