The question that might follow is: Did she have an underlying condition that was the reason she was undergoing the termination in the first place?

Would staying pregnant definitely have led to her death?

If that were the case, a c-section would have been called for, not an abortion. From a medical stand point, not too much difference in risk when considering the big picture.

Plus, read Roe v. Wade, late term abortions were effectively banned. The government has an interest (i.e. the life of the baby) at the point of viability was the ruling. Viability by current medical technology is 23 weeks.
