    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 389/278/H=1432)

    If any pious Muslim doctor suggests and prescribes that the pain of pregnancy and birth would be unbearable, so it is allowable to abort the pregnancy of less than three months. But, if the foetus is more than three months old, then abortion is not lawful rather it is haram.
