In extenuating circumstances, like the ones her friends went through, it would be tough for the mother to be able to even look at the child because he/she would remind the woman of her awful experiences. A woman who got cancer after being pregnant would have to wait until the baby is either born or gone before she could have treatment, and she would die before the baby would be born (S.D Voters 1).
