    She possibly could regret this terminating I mean. Especially with a supportive sister like you.

    I had a termination as a teenager in WA and I didn't have to pay a cent. I went through my local hospital as a public patient.
    I knew as soon as I fell pregnant that I did not want to keep the baby and neither did the father, so it was pretty much a straight forward decision for me. But if you SIL is doubting the decision then I think maybe she needs to think about it some more, maybe on her own or with a counsellor.
    I wish her all the best

    I think you are just lovely being so supportive. Does she actually realise that it's a baby at 15 weeks? You know with arms and legs that can actually move around etc? I had a termination at 15 and I didn't quite understand that and I was only 9 weeks at the time. I really think she needs to understand that before going through a termination at that gestation. As gruesome as it sound maby show her what a baby at that gestation looks like( if she wants to see ofcourse), at 16 it is hard to get your head around.

    I really hope she's ok and makes the right decision for herself

    A agree with some of the above. When she is older she may actually have a whole lot more guilt having a abortion knowing at 15 weeks it is a fully formed little baby. I think dealing with that with a counsellor may be very beneficial for her. Best of luck to you both.

    Thanks will give her that number too.

    Have spoke to Marie stopes, they gave me one of the higher quotes!

    I know, we seen on the ultrasound, a very clearly formed bub... It was moving around so much... I thought she would of considered other options after seeing the ultrasound.
    But I'm definitely getting her in to a councillor tomorrow!
