You can have an abortion up to 12 weeks.
Up to 20 weeks you can have an abortion if baby has a defect like downs syndrome or something else picked up during tests.

Go and see a counsellor (Marie Stopes offer counselling) and consider giving baby up for adoption. There are so many couples out there looking for babies and desperate to give them a loving home. If you are not in a position to care for baby, then give someone else that opportunity.

At this stage you can only medically abort, so you will have to concider adoption. And by the way, the baby is already fully developed, just maturing at this stage. But each to it''s own, you should or will start to feel the kicks by now or in a week or two.

You make me sick. We have trying to fall pregnant for many years and now people like you just abort this innocent little Gift from God as if it is just another inconvience. If you are 5 months pregnant, the baby is almost fully developed. How can you even ask if you can abort??? Why did you not use contraception before the time??? If you abort, I hope the guilt consumes the rest of your life.
