Is it reasonable to call ob/gyns who terminate pregnancies if anomalies?

In brief: Birth defects
Your own OB gyn should help you find a doctor if you would like a termination for an anomalous fetus.

However your OB may have strong religious convictions & refuse to do so. You would then have to make enquiries in and out of State to find a rational consultant. However, many fetal anomalies are compatible with a perfectly normal life & life expectancy. For instance a fetus with a single but normal kidney, with a single multicystic or hydronephrotic kidney can look forward to a normal life.
