seperating lead and cast iron pipes

I am redoing the bathroom in my basement because the toilet was leaking. After removing the toilet I found that the lead pipe is bent out of shape and was not sealing on the flange (about a 1 inch gap between the pipe and the flange on one side). The lead pipe is about 1 foot long and then connects to I belive a cast iron elbow. I want to replace the lead pipe with abs so how would I seperate the lead pipe from the cast iron elbow?

That lead connects into a brass ferrule into the cast iron hub. You can either cut that brass and leave a couple inches exposed for a mission no hub coupling or you can attempt to remove that ferrule and use a service weight gasket, then come out of that hub with ABS. My second idea is labor intensive but a better finished product.
