Re: I couldn't have said this..... Elle
Infants who have died in utero will usually be expelled within a few days. I don't believe it's an abortion if the baby's already dead. There is a problem that if the baby stays in for too long it can cause a serious infection. The woman will go into labor knowing that the baby won't live. Since there's no set number of hours before labor begins, a woman in this situation might choose to have labor induced. The doctor has documentation that the pregnancy is not viable. It's not a late term abortion in this sort of situation, it's a tragedy.
