Please people my friend wants to terminate a 6 months pregnancy because its her second out of wedlock.
The guy involved has bailed on her, her mom is taking care of her 1st child and currently is very ill. Her siblings told her its better she kills herself than kill their mom.
People i tried talking her out of it or even having the baby and giving up for adoption, i really don't know what to say or do anymore. please options needed.
You guys are my last attempt at saving two souls right now.
Abortion is out of the question. At six months the fetus is viable. It will be a live birth.
Yes the fetus will have a difficult time but it can definitely survive.
Adoption is the only option available.
It is very risky to terminate a 6 months pregnancy. It could be fatal for your friend. Usually, a 20 weeks of gestation is a latest date for abortion. After that period, abortions can be performed by labor induction, prostaglandin labor induction, saline infusion, dilatation and extraction, hysterotomy, or intact dilatation and extraction. All extreme measures as you can see.
My advice is that she bring forth the child and if she and her family are not able to raise that child, then the baby should be given to adoption. It is a better option and could save your friend's life.
