My choice is to Support the Woman and Save the Baby. I know 3 women whose doctors told them to get an abortion because of the threat to their health or because the baby was deformed. Because the church preaches only against abortion and not empathy for the woman these three women had no church leaders to turn to. They had never heard empathy from their religious leaders that would have led them to visit with their clergy person. When clergy condemn from the pulpit they should envisage a woman in the congregation who is faced with a pregnancy crisis. What do these preachers think this woman is going to do? Certainly not refrain from an abortion. We need to learn to love the women and support them.
