Ruling 2471

It is not permitted to abort a foetus even if a woman becomes pregnant through fornication unless the foetus remaining [in the mother’s womb] causes the mother harm or excessive difficulty. In such a case, it is permitted to abort the foetus before the soul has entered it, but [if this is done, then] blood money (diyah) must be paid. Aborting a foetus after the soul has entered it is not permitted even if, based on obligatory precaution, it causes the mother excessive difficulty or harm.
