Fetus having no kidney connection, amniotic fluid. Waiting for medical termination, miscarriage, no survival chances. True?

My granddaughter has just been told her 6 month old fetus , has no kidney connection and no amniotic fluid . They are deciding either to have an abortion for medical reasons or let the miscarriage happen on its own. She has been told that the baby has NO chance of life outside the uterus. Is that true??

A baby with no connection of the kidney with outside and no amniotic fluid has no chances of survival. Your doctor has advised you correctly to have a medical termination of pregnancy or let the fetus to abort on its own.
