Is this a part c question ?

Christians allow abortion if the following conditions apply.. 

  • the life or physical health of the mother is at risk
  • the mental health of the mother is at risk
  • the mother’s existing family will suffer
  • there is a reasonable chance that the child will be born seriously disabled

Some denominations of Christians do allow abortion, especially in an instance where the Mother's life is in danger if she has the baby. 

Some Christians (Church of Jesus of Latter-Day Saints) will even allow an abortion if the baby is a result of incest or ****, and the same branch of Christianity also permit abortions if the baby will be born with a disability or severe defect
