Don't know the context of your story or setting or anything, but there are a lot of natural herbs that will cause a spontaneous abortion (miscarraige). For a violent way there's always the clothes hanger trick or the bad guy could always just cut out the baby...more dramatic for late term abortions.
for great ideas for betrayals there is always the count of monte cristo to observe and learn from.

Number 1 I'll have to think about.
The obvious choice is magic unless you wanted to go something a little more realistic. Like a stomach bug? Maybe poison?
