Hello

In respect of the matter, under Australian law, you really cannot claim costs in respect of a termination of the pregnancy.

It is a part of the law that is never really sought, let alone the legal costs in respect of same.

I wish I could give better news but I cannot give you false information that well, results in false hope.

I do however suggest that you contact the father and request that he assist, but legally, no there is no real mechanism to claim sadly.
