Psyche Are schizophrenic mothers competent while having hallucinations?

DISCLAIMER: THIS IS AN NBME CONCEPT, SO DO NOT READ IF YOU PLAN ON SOLVING NBMEs

--------------------


A schizophrenic woman is pregnant, and she is off her antipsych. now she hears voices telling her that (she must get an abortion) because the baby is the devil's child, what should you do?

One of the options said: start her on antipsychs and arrange for abortion

My reasoning was: we consider the baby part of the mom, and schizofrenics are totally competent, and are treated as such

what do you think?

Of course there was the option:

Defer the abortion, and start her antispsychs.
