am I permitted to do abortion to any woman who, due to some reason wants to get the abortion done?

الاستفتاء

Assalamu Alaikum

I am a homeopathic doctor and separated from husband. Maintenance of two sons is my responsibility. The question is, am I permitted to do abortion to any woman who, due to some reason wants to get the abortion done? If yes, then under which conditions? Will the income be Halal? My sons are Hafizs (حافظ قرآن). Is this work permissible?

الجواب حامدا و مصلیا

If a woman wants to get an abortion done on a Shar’i excuse and her health is deteriorated to the extent that, avoiding abortion could lead to risk her life or life of her children who are already with her, or could end up in extreme difficulty, and the questioner herself as well, sincerely realizes based on her medical experience that, abortion is the only option, then, before four months, the questioner has a leeway of performing abortion on the said woman and the income also will be Halal and not otherwise.

Allah knows best.
