An abortion is a serious moral and social issue and arouses strong emotions all around the world. It is one of the most divisive issues in religion, science and law today. Is it ever right to terminate a pregnancy? Relatively it happens often that members of particular churches do not have cognizance of the stance on the issue of abortion of their church community. This may be caused by general public liberal approach to „not-interference, not-care“ that prevails in society. Much of the focus of this contribution, therefore, is on the historical and canonical sources which compared denominations – Islam and Judaism and are based on and also attempt to partially clarify the prevailing views on abortion of selected churches. The comparison of this contribution focuses on basic differentiating criteria - under what circumstances selected churches accept abortion. The article covers European monotheistic religion, which oppose deliberate abortion as immoral especially in the past.
