Thanks for writing to us.
You can go for an abortion if it is an unplanned pregnancy and the heart beat has not yet appeared. But if it is her first pregnancy then it is best to keep the baby as the abortion is always associated with some complications which should be avoided.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
