Assalamu 'alaykum

The following question was answered by Mulla Asgher.

QUESTION:

If an innocent girl is raped against her wish, and becomes pregnant, does
Islam allow abortion for her to safeguard the honour and the future of that
girl?


ANSWER:

Abortion of a pregnancy resulting from rape is also forbidden. The question
of safeguarding her honour and her future will remain regardless of the
abortion. I believe that no damage to her honour or future is done, because
she has been innocent and has been raped against her wishes.
