Question

Is the Baha’i Holy Law silent about abortion, and thus it is up to the House to rule upon it?

First Answer

Kitab-i-Aqdas

The Kitab-i-Aqdas was the Addendum to the Babi book of Laws, Bayan and Qayammul-Asma’,which forbade abortion and divorce. Baha’u’llah abrogates the no divorce law, but not the no abortion law. The Aqdas cannot be understood without the Asma, because it is only the Addendum to the Asma.Shoghi Effendi repeatedly said that abortion was “absolutely forbidden” for Baha’is, without making exceptions to this rule.
