There's no disputing (we may suppose) that abortion is indeed prohibited by morality_Bob.

This isn't the clearest example, because it seems like abortion is one of those things everyone would come to agree on if they knew and understood all the arguments. A clearer example is a pencil-maximizing AI vs a paperclip-maximizing AI. Do you think that these two necessarily disagree on any facts? I don't.
