  • We are sorry for what you've experienced.There should be some questions on the topic of abortion on the site. Basically scholars consider this as permissible (mainly) regardless of the reason, expect of the matter of fearing poverty if the child was born. The issue is the timing for this intervention and I think there are some different opinions, however the earlier you do this the less scholars would regard this as haraam.
