I have heard that changing the cat littler is dangerous because of something toxic to unborn babies in the cat's urine. What is this?

You are probably thinking of toxoplasma, which is a parasite that can be carried in cat faeces (not urine). If you have direct skin contact with cat litter, then it is possible you could develop a toxoplasma infection which in rare cases could pass across the placenta and affect your developing baby. The commonest way of developing the infection is however from eating undercooked meat.
