Our expert says:
The situation you describe does indeed sound rather fishy, especially thins like her wanting money for a termination to be paid into her account, but not for you to pay it directly to the doctors and clinics involved. It does sound as though there may have been elements of entrapment, and deception in what happened.
Surely a termination is a very sad decision to make, and is not about cash. Indeed, can it not be arranged at a state clinic without the costs of a private procedure ? Not that I am recommending that, but to emphasize that it isn't about money being paid into accounts, but about the sad ending of a potential life.
Why not expres concern over her health and that she should be properly cared for, and ask to go with her and meet her gynae, discuss the pregnancy and the options with the doctor and her, and make sure you are both making the best decision ? A genuinely pregnant woman would have no good reason to refuse that.
If she is truthful, you are the father of the foetus, and have every right and reason to be concerned and involved in the process and the decisions. I understand your concern that she may either not be pregnant and trying to extort money for a non-existent termination, perhaps as plan B from a failed attempt to claim pregnancy and persuade you to marry her. If money were not part of the equation, would either of you have been reacting differently ?
