E.coli infection is more likely to take hold in a weakened patient. We are exposed to pathogens more often than we fall ill from them.
So the question is not whether the E.coli came from the foetus, or whether it came form the hospital or was there before she was admitted. The question is whether allowing the natural miscarriage process to proceed for days rather than performing an abortion can tip the chances of falling to opportunistic infections.
In addition, am I mistaken that the abortion might have been performed by inducing delivery rather than by a caesarean? Does that not involve less risk of "surgical" complications?

It is a natural process which kicks in in a significant % of pregnancies
IIRC, historically around 25%, mostly depending on how widespread syfilis is in the population. If this looks high it is mostly because a lot of these are in early stages and may not be noticed as a miscarriage.

Had heard as much as one third of pregnancies - early stages.
