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.
Normal is just a stereotype.
