No,adoption better: The best thing for you to do is to find a couple who are not able to have children and adopt out your baby. An induced abortion at 5 months does not come without risks. See a Provider for this discussion.

Be realistic: Miscarriage or stillbirth (delivering dead) does occasionally occur up to the time of natural delivery. Don't plan on it. You either need to plan to deliver it and keep it, give it away or kill it. There are no other options.
