“In South Africa, any woman of any age can get an abortion by simply requesting with no reasons given if she is less than 13 weeks pregnant. If she is between 13 and 20 weeks pregnant, she can get the abortion if (a) her own physical or mental health is at stake, (b) the baby will have severe mental or physical abnormalities, (c) she is pregnant because of incest, (d) she is pregnant because of rape, or (e) she is of the personal opinion that her economic or social situation is sufficient reason for the termination of pregnancy. If she is more than 20 weeks pregnant, she can get the abortion only if her or the fetus' life is in danger or there are likely to be serious birth defects.[2]” - It is however advisable for your to seek the professional assistance of a professional dealing with safe and legal abortions to consult with you regarding any and all your questions.

NO! NO! NO!!

Many babies are born alive at that time! All this person will achieve is a very ill, very prem but alive baby. The baby is definitely alive and viable. If whoever this is has a problem with having the child, I suggest getting hold of their closest clinic as a matter of urgency! There are many parents desperate to give a child a happy life. Please give them a chance to be a loving parent!
