There is a saying that patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels. One could equally make the case that religion is the last refuge of the pro-abortion variety of scoundrels. Their use of religion is most creative: They are ready to invoke religion to justify the right to have an abortion ("it's a matter between a woman, her doctor, and her God"), but consider it unacceptable to invoke religion to justify the right to life.
When "her God" gives a woman permission to have her child killed by an abortionist, she exercises a constitutional right. When pro-lifers seek to protect the child because God has created the child in His image and endowed her with the inalienable right to life, they are accused of imposing religious doctrine on the public in violation of "separation of church and state." Pro-abortionists insist on having it both ways.
