* {{Downplayed}} rather delicately in ''Literature/KrisLongknife: Unrelenting''. At least one of the women impregnated as a result of the sabotage of a shipment of contraceptive implants chooses to terminate. Kris encounters her in sickbay afterwards and the younger woman is clearly torn-up about it; the chief medical officer describes her as having had to make her first serious adult decision since joining the military. Kris, who got pregnant herself (by her husband) in the same incident also firmly stomps on a (male) admiral's suggestion that the pregnant women be ''made'' to abort.

*** Subverted with Morgan [=DeWitt=], an ex-girlfriend of Ridge's who came to town still bitter about the abortion she'd had years ago. Flashbacks indicated that she had in fact ''wanted'' the baby, but had been browbeaten into terminating the pregnancy by Ridge's [[MyBelovedSmother controlling mother]] Stephanie, who didn't feel that Morgan was good enough for Ridge, nor that the two were ready to take on the responsibility of parenthood.

* ''Literature/DreamPark'' sequel ''The Barsoom Project'' has a female character who (in the backstory) had attracted too much male attention at a young age, and ended up getting an abortion. The procedure left her sterile and caused her to gain a large amount of weight as a 'shield' against men. Her character arc involves forgiving herself for this.

* The Irish short film ''{{WebVideo/Aaron}}'' deals with the aftermath of a TeenPregnancy. The girl in question was going to carry the baby to term, but her parents were going to make her give it up. Naturally it resulted in a ConvenientMiscarriage. This one has a justification that abortion is illegal in Ireland.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', a book series that has appeared since ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'' entitled "The Real Barenziah" suggests within Part 3 that Barenziah carried on an intimate affair with Tiber Septim in which she eventually got pregnant. Barenziah wanted to keep the child. As a bastard child from a Dunmer mistress would be ''very'' inconvenient for the Emperor (illegitimate heirs to the throne tend to do that), he basically forced his healer to magically abort it against her will. This became a plot point in the story as the story implied she also had trouble conceiving later in life due to the limited fertility of Dunmer and the trauma of the event.

* In UsefulNotes/{{Islam}}, the fetus is believed to gain a soul after four months so past that point abortion is impermissible. Even before that point, abortion is generally only allowed when the fetus is a threat to the mother's life.

* In UsefulNotes/{{Islam}}, the fetus is believed to gain a soul after four months so past that point abortion is impermissible. Even Whether or not it's permissible before four months differs from scholar to scholar with stances ranging from forbidden to completely permissible. Muslims universally agree that point, abortion is generally only allowed when the fetus is a threat to the mother's life. life takes precedence over that the fetus regardless of term.

* {{Averted|Trope}} in the very first TV abortion, that of the 47-year-old protagonist of ''Series/{{Maude}}''. No complications are referred to, and her family supports her choice. Her daughter's encouragement included explaining why a 47-year-old shouldn't have a baby, and Adrienne Barbeau played the daughter. Ironically, the episode aired ''before'' Roe v. Wade became law, but abortion had recently been made legal in New York, which was one of only four states to have abortion on request, with no reason required. Some people interpreted the episode as a subtle PSA regarding this fact.
