Women do not find out about life threatening diseases and conditions that they are carriers of until after 15 weeks or later via lab work and genetic screening. Families may be forced to choose between potential suffering of a family and child or to end the pregnancy. It takes time to have these tests done and genetic counseling also takes place after all results are in. It is not easy to decide to terminate a pregnancy if you were expecting a healthy child and are told otherwise. Thought the health/pain of the unborn child is being considered for this proposal, I think it is unwise to not consider the health/pain of a child once it is born with a devastating illness or condition. The chance to end the suffering before it begins and allow time for the necessary mental healing the family will need should be more important than forcing a mother to give birth.
