If you found out the baby you're expecting would be having a life time illness, what would you do?

There are probably as many reasons for abortions as there are women who have them. Some pregnancies result from rape or incest, and women who are victims of these assaults often seek abortions. Most women, however, decide to have an abortion because the pregnancy represents a problem in their lives.

Sometimes people enter into a casual sexual relationship that leads to pregnancy with no prospect of marriage. Even if the sexual relationship is more than casual, abortion is may be sought because a woman decides that the social status of the male is inappropriate.

One in 20 mums-to-be are told their unborn baby may have a serious abnormality.  So what happens if you find yourself with the awful choice – whether to proceed with the pregnancy, or terminate?

Every expectant mum worries and dreams about their child’s future. But how would you deal with the agonising news there is a chance your child might be born seriously ill or disabled?

More than 35,000 pregnant women are at risk that their unborn baby may have a major abnormality.

If that’s the case, how do you even begin to decide what to do? Do you carry on the pregnancy, hoping the odds are on your side?

Or do you consider the unthinkable, and terminate?
