Iranian MP says Abortion not Condemned by Quran, Pushes Abortion Bill

TEHRAN, February 1, 2005 ( – Member of the Iranian parliament, Mehrangiz Morovati, said Monday that abortion is not prohibited by the Quran. She seeks approval of a draft law legalizing the practice. 

“The draft of abortion therapy was passed with the official permission from Supreme Leader of Islamic Republic and other religious authorities, so in this respect, it doesn’t contradict Quranic spiritual values,” Morovati claimed.

Iran’s parliament approved a draft bill in July, allowing abortion in the first four months of pregnancy if the mother’s life is in danger or if the baby is malformed. The measure still needs final approval.
