    They are rabbis. If they go against the Halakha, they are doing a disservice to everyone. Would you rather they lie about what the Torah says? they should not selectively choose excerpts that serve their personal emotions and neglect what they do not like. a rabbi is a faithful man who believes in god. they are a role model and a mentor in their communities. if the leadership is bad it sets a bad example. in this case they would be condoning blasphemy according to the torah. this could have a negative affect on many people. if people want to have abortions let them go to another place outside of Israel.
