In the name of Allah The Most Gracious The Most Merciful. My wife and I have been going through infertility treatment. Currently, my wife has been treated with a drug that stimulates the production of multiple eggs. My semen will be injected inside her uterus to allow for pregnancy to take place, Insha Allah. This procedure results in multiple pregnancies. This means that she may be pregnant with more than one baby. This multiple pregnancy may have several complications on both the life of the mother and the health of the babies (mental retardation, failure to survive, general growth and development, etc.). Due to these reasons, the doctor recommends removal of some of the fetuses on the 6-7 week following pregnancy to keep one or two in order to increase the success of the procedure and the survival of the babies, and reduce any health risks towards the mother and the babies. What is the Islamic ruling on the doctor's recommendation in terms of the removal of the fetuses? May Allah reward you for our efforts.
