"Very likely"?

You think it's "very likely" that she would "still" have gotten septic after a medically indicated termination of her pregnancy performed in a hospital? You think that has the same likelihood as getting septic after three days of having a traumatic miscarriage and being in terrible pain?

That's like saying someone who takes out his own kidney with a spoon and dies was "very likely" to die if the same procedure was performed by a doctor in a hospital. It's just stupid. Sure, she might have died anyway, but the chances are a lot lower.
