10. Did you miss the part about having two other kids?
If nobody was able to step in and care for them for months, she might not have had a choice in the matter.

I'm not pregnant or looking to be, but if were and my choices were months and months of bed rest or a miscarriage, I'd ask for a D&C. First off, because I'm a single parent and I don't have anybody to drop anything and deal with my kid, let alone my other responsibilities, for months on end, and second because in a pregnancy that risky the outcomes would probably not be favorable anyhow.

For that matter, extended bed rest is itself a health risk for the woman.
