* ''Literature/TheNeanderthalParallax'': Mary starts to undergo one when it's shown that a religious experience can be induced by magnetic fields. When this happens to people all over the world at once, following the specific beliefs they have, she concludes that religion is bunk. Even before this, she disagree with the Catholic Church on many issues (as many liberal Catholics in North America do). This prompts her to decide her child with Ponter ''shouldn't'' be made capable of religious beliefs.

* A big part of the plot of the movie ''Film/{{Dogma}}'' revolves around Bethany, who was raised Catholic her whole life, is now questioning the existence of God after an infection destroyed her uterus, preventing her from ever having kids and causing her husband two divorce her. This gets thrown for a loop when she encounters, an angel, two "prophets" (Jay and Silent Bob), and the thirteenth apostle who assist her on a journey to find out what happened to God, who ended up missing, and stop two renegade angels from causing all of existence to be eradicated.
