Nuchal translucency (NT) scan is a screening test for Down syndrome. An ABNORAML NT test directs you for further testing- CVS or amniocentesis. If you are not going for these invasive tests, you are taking risk of having a fetus with abnormal chromosomes.

I suggest not aborting. Instead go for the CVS or amniocentesis. These tests are confirmatory.
