    As Salamu Alaikum,

    I’m not sure what the purpose of this article was. Its not clear why the posters (except the scholars at the bottom) were chosen. Was it simply to show that Muslims are all over the place regarding abortion?

    Summarizing the various scholarly Islamic positions would have been more helpful. There are already a number of MuslmMatters articles on abortion – some of them are excellent, some not so – a summary of these would do the job and provide Muslims more insight than a brief roundup of social media.

    Apologies, I do see some links at the bottom. Jazak Allahu Khayran. Still, a summary would be nice!

    Abortion is a symptom, The root is Sex before marriage. There are more heterosexual acts of sin then LGBT, but we do not bring up casual sex as much as other issues. We believe in the Day of Judgement and its signs, All Abrahamic faiths do. Moral decay and its ensuing tests is and are daily tests from Allah. There is no compulsion in religion. Pro-active shaming and guilt tripping is not good character, but when a moral issue is brought up, the truth which maybe uncomfortable is desirable and admirable to speak.
