Hi and welcome to the site. Unfortunately, this late into the pregnancy, there isn't any safe way of aborting the baby. I'm very sorry that you find yourself in this situation. The impact of a baby from use of TiK is very unpredictable. Some babies even of heavy users do perfectly well as long as they are raised in a situation without further substance use. Physical effects can be very unpredictable and may appear later in childhood. But mental and social effects may appear earlier and may respond to specific therapy. Children would need very specific teaching in behavioral control and social skills.
