Situation as follows:
A is pregnant, but also since long time unemployed also due to having already 2 children. Has job offer, but thinks that if potential employer would know she is pregnant, the offer would be retracted. Hence, she is considering abortion, since she does not want to lie about to her future employer and knows he would not offer her the job, if he knew about pregnancy.
B, personally not understandingwhy a job could be important enough to kill ahuman being, offers with the intent that she decides against abortion, the advice that the law does not require her to tell the future employer, forbids him to ask and allows her to lie in case she is asked without consequences and that furthermore, after signing the contract the law forbids the employer to fire her till at least several months after the birth of the child (pretty nasty for employer, he expects to have a 6-month period in which he can cancel the contract, in case he realizes she isnt suited for the job, her being pregnant destroys this option). So in summary B suggest to A that she should lie in case she is asked and should not care whether this situation creates serious problems for the employer, because the law is on her side and lying is less severe than abortion.
Is B acting sinful, because instead of advising A about the wrongness of the whole idea "abortion to secure job", B aims for the result by advising her to commit a "lesser evil"?
Would A sin in lying to the employer and exploiting the legal situation, which is quite unfair for the employer?
Is lying the lesser sin compared to abortion? (after all, the lying only "saves" the child because it is endangered by the mothers desire for a job in the first place,optimally she should not consider abortion at all)
