I don't understand what you're saying here, as a pregnancy that has already self-terminated (water breaking) cannot be terminated. Abortion is premature termination of the pregnancy; it says nothing of the survival or not of the baby. (of course the baby usually is dying, that's why they need to be aborted)

I think I see the confusion, termination refers to the pregnancy. Not the fetus, it may survive the abortion or it may not (or already be dead). The pregnancy is aborted.
