Very few religious groups (not just Christian groups) have a position which states there should be no restriction on a woman’s right to an abortion.

Most support outright bans or extreme limits. This is not just an Evangelical or Catholic thing.

They note that Islam, Buddhism, and Orthodox Judaism do not have a fixed position (primarily because they do not have a fixed body which hands down rules to all congregations).

Note also that the United Methodists were in the early throes of a schism that’s going to lead to a church just as conservative as the Southern Baptists that probably gets to keep the UMC name, and another that will include most of the urban and many suburban churches outside the Deep South, that is “open and affirming” to LGBT and will likely also move left on abortion rights from where the UMC was in that article, though.
