In the LDS church, abortion may be an acceptable decision under extreme circumstances. Otherwise, members are excommunicated for this practice.

According to the church's official website, LDS.org, "Human life is a sacred gift from God. Elective abortion for personal or social convenience is contrary to the will and the commandments of God. Church members who submit to, perform, encourage, pay for, or arrange for such abortions may lose their membership in the Church."
