    National pregnancy helpline- 1800 422 213

    Pregnancy counseling link- 1800 77 690

    Please please use these numbers! If she isn't comfortable with who picks up the phone ask to speak to someone else or try a different number.

    All of the above say they offer non-judgmental help for unplanned pregnancy.

    I think Relationships Australia (or family planning i think it used to be called) do counselling for such things? Maybe worth checking it out as it'll probably be pretty easy to get in to.

    With the financial side...if she can't afford the procedure, how is she supposed to afford to look after a child? Maybe something worth considering also?

    But well done for being so supportive. Everyone needs a sister like you!

    I just want to point out, I can afford to raise my DD, but I couldn't come up with that much money upfront. To the average person that is a lot of money.

    Have you tried calling your women's hospital and asking to speak to the termination nurse? Sometimes it may be possible to get one done there free of charge. IMO the cost should not play a factor either way.

    If I have a few weeks to get the money it would be alright, but because we need it with in the next week or so, it's not going to happen.

    Also me and dp have been looking after her for the past year, but centerlink won't give us money for her , not give money, as they don't clarify us as her guardians
