Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

Abortion will only be permissible if the mother's life is in certain and absolute danger, this should be advised by a qualified and experienced Muslim doctor. Thus, abortion will not be permissible in this situation.

Your wife has fallen pregnant with the will of Allah Ta'ala. So seek Allah's help and support, have trust in Him and be patient.

Allah Ta'ala Says : And whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. (65:2-3).

And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
