Abortion, An Understanding From Quran

I seek refuge in GOD, from Satan the rejected
In the name of GOD, Most Gracious and Most Merciful

This compilation of verses deals with what the Quran says on abortion (and infanticide)

The Major Commandments

[6:151] Say, "Come let me tell you what your Lord has really prohibited for you: You shall not set up idols besides Him. You shall honor your parents. You shall not kill your children from fear of poverty - we provide for you and for them. You shall not commit gross sins, obvious or hidden. You shall not kill - GOD has made life sacred - except in the course of justice. These are His commandments to you, that you may understand."

(subtitle) Abortion is Murder

[17:31] You shall not kill your children due to fear of poverty. We provide for them, as well as for you. Killing them is a gross offense.

[60:12] O you prophet, when the believing women (who abandoned the disbelievers) to seek asylum with you pledge to you that they will not set up any idols besides GOD, nor steal, nor commit adultery, nor kill their children, nor fabricate any falsehood, nor disobey your righteous orders, you shall accept their pledge, and pray to GOD to forgive them. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

Bigoted Bias Against Baby Girls

[16:57] They even assign daughters to GOD, be He glorified, while they prefer for themselves what they like.
[16:58] When one of them gets a baby girl, his face becomes darkened with overwhelming grief.
[16:59] Ashamed, he hides from the people, because of the bad news given to him. He even ponders: should he keep the baby grudgingly, or bury her in the dust. Miserable indeed is their judgment.
