If she's not ready to raise a child it's not a good idea to pessure her, because that may make more preblems later with regrets later. But there are other options besides abortion. There's adoption, there are tons of couples that can't have children and your "mistake" could be a blessing to someone else. She may decide a little later, after she sees the baby that she can do it. You may have to decide if you want to be a single dad if need be. You need to talk to her and you need to decide what you want to do. You could try to fight it If you really want.

Abortion is sin in both the eyes of God and of man. I've known a lot of girls who have unddergone abortion and have not really forgven themselves of the crime they have committed. Yes it is crime because you're going to end a life. That's very sad. You can have your girlfriend talk to someone whom she would listen to so that, that person could talk some sense into her. I'm so proud of you for standing up for your unborn child. It is usually the guys who thinks like that, its so sadd that the mother herself is the one who wants to kill her own child.

You should let her do what she wants. It's her body. If she wants to abort, let her abort. You can't do anything to stop it. If you don't like the fact she aborted the fetus, then break up with her or find a way to get over it. Other than that, there is nothing physically or emotionally you can do. It's her body and her life therefore it's her choice, not yours.
