If you consider the difference between "offend thee" and "offend God," pretty much any abortion would be permissible.

pro-lifers don't accept a fetus as a part of a woman's body, so would reject the notion that matthew 18:8 applies to a fetus.

There's an old testament passage that specifies the punishment for harming a woman in a way that causes miscarriage. It is a lesser punishment than the punishment for causing a person's death, so at least the OT would not appear to view a fetus as equal to a human life.

My response:

Haha I don't think Jesus would resort to weeping given the current situation.
