I always thought the same thing. The doctor's wanted to keep the baby in as long as possible. My cousin eventually had to be admitted in to the hospital at 5 months. she had so many issues I cant even begin to list them. but the doctors told her, one or both might die and she would had to let them know what she wanted. a month later she delivered the baby knowing it may had died, but if she waited any longer, she would had most likely had died. At least they gave her the choice. this was ten years ago and I cant recall if the hospital was religious affiliate or not.
