owen supports cristina getting an abortion at first, and then has outbursts at her saying she killed their child, etc. the show itself doesnt really lean towards either way, but meredith doesnt like owen particularly because of that

Literally the entire reason why this film was made was to spread anti-abortion propaganda.

The show itself seems to be pro-choice (a character is given an abortion pill and this is viewed as positive) but there is at least one character who becomes very Christian and I believe is anti-abortion

This movie is inherent anti-abortion. The beginning of the movie has our protagonist, Becky, leaving home to get away from her parents and ex who want her to get an abortion. She almost goes through with the abortion but decides to give her baby up for adoptions instead. Becky and her ex had a sort of arch that brings them back together and she keeps the baby.

Well, it’s a Christian film that debates whether abortion is right or not but it’s pushed that abortion is murder

not necessarily a theme in the movie, but for plot-related reasons the main character refuses to let his wife get an abortion.

possibly; yuno's only crime is her abortions, which could possibly be anti-abortion. whether that meaning having anti-abortion themes is intentional or not is unknown.

The movie and Ladybird’s stance is definitely pro-choice but you do see an anti-abortion assembly at a Catholic girl’s school which could be upsetting to viewers sensitive to anti-choice propaganda.

In the episode "Charlie Wants An Abortion" the Gang talks about abortion, some being for it and some against it. The show itself doesn't really take a stance.

Mac mentions in a few episode how he thinks abortion is killing babies. Other characters vocally disagree with him.

Although the game does not deliberately advance an anti-abortion agenda, it is styled after the Satanic Panic of the early 1980s. True to style, the main antagonist of the series runs a reproductive health clinic that is secretly a front (and source of sacrifices) for a Satanic death cult. This is presented as commentary on the themes, rather than promotion of them, but they're present nonetheless.

Characters discuss abortions, and never end up having them. Most characters seem to be pro-choice.

Glenn doesn't believe in contraception or abortions, and this is discussed in a few episodes.

Yes, a character is shown to have a hatred for abortion due to her own trauma. Though abortion is neither shown as a bad nor a good thing in the series itself.
