Q: My gynecologist told my husband and I after the birth of our daughter that, if I should fall pregnant again me or the baby will die. My last born was a twin but I lost the one baby. There was complications with me in theatre because they could not control my bleeding and I could not have a baby for the past 7 months. Thats why I am asking if I can have an abortion if I fall pregnant again.

A: This is not a valid reason to terminate life just on the basis of some advice that is speculative.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
