Drugs & pregnancy

Good day, my sister in law is 6 weeks pregnant. We recently found out she has a herion addiction. She stopped (2 days back) with the drugs. Now she drinks sleeping pills and a lot of alchahol. What affect will this have on her baby. She wants to have an abortion, but she is not sure!
