You're pregnant before you give birth, and you can only have an abortion when you're pregnant, otherwise it's murder. So, "When Lisa was five months along, she had an abortion," means that when Lisa was 5 months pregnant, she had an abortion.

It means the first option you gave, that she was 5 months pregnant.
