"Should there be those who desire to persuade [you] that — God forbid — you perform an abortion: Tell them that this constitutes deliberate murder of a creature who is as yet unable to protect himself from those who seek to murder him."   


"In reply to your letter: I was shocked to read there that a certain woman is thinking of having an abortion so she can free herself, G‑d forbid, from her pregnancy.

You will surely speak to her immediately and seek to convince her that she absolutely negate this thought, and the pregnancy and birth should reach their conclusion in a good and easy manner for the birth of a healthy and viable child — for so has commanded our holy Torah, the Torah of Life."

(From a letter of the Rebbe, dated Rosh Chodesh Menachem Av, 5731)
