* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'': Phoebe's [[TheAntiChrist Antichrist]]-like son is transferred out of her body into the uterus of another woman, The Seer, whom the ''Charmed'' sisters then kill. Phoebe doesn't seem particularly shaken up about it, which makes sense since when the baby controlled her she felt that it wasn't hers nor did it have a soul (which was true, since it was the Seer's own evil spawn) and it absolves her of all the crappy things she does while she was pregnant.

* [[GoodBadBugs Inadvertently possible]] in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', thanks to the Tome of Battle. Though its magical qualities are [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower arguable]], one of the powers it introduces lets you end any ongoing effect currently effecting your character. [[GoodBadBugs What counts as an "ongoing effect"]] has been [[FandomBerserkButton a topic of discussion]] [[InternetBackdraft ever since the book was released]], but [[MemeticMutation under most interpretations, pregnancy counts.]] And you also get [[DeadBabyComedy a +2 Morale bonus to your next attack, due to how uplifting it is.]]

* In the ''Literature/DragonridersOfPern'' universe, the ''between'' used in teleporting is very cold, seeing as how it is absolute nothingness. Female dragonriders who go ''between'' too often or too long can end up infertile or sterile, and at least one dragonrider has deliberately used it to induce multiple abortions.
** In some books in the series 'taking a short dragon ride' is mentioned as a Pernese euphemism for abortion.

* Cordelia on ''Series/{{Angel}}'' was pregnant twice over the course of the series, only the last of which resulted in an actual birth. Her first pregnancy in season one (''Expecting'') with demonic septuplets was terminated supernaturally by the death of their demon daddy, [[NoOntologicalInertia which destroyed the evil babies by proxy through a psychic connection]].
** Apart from the two actual pregnancies (three if you count the demon eggs in her skull) Cordelia was also faced with numerous impregnation attempts. "And when we're finished here, can we go and find some world somewhere where an ugly demon doesn't want to impregnate me with his demon seed? I mean, is it me? Do I give off some kind of 'come-shuck-me' vibe? You'd tell me, right?"
** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] with Darla, who ''tried'' to find some way to get rid of her pregnancy, whether mundane or magical, but couldn't--fetus!Connor basically had a magical force field around him. Ironically the thing that came closest to killing him was his actual birth, since the same magic caused complications before [[spoiler:Darla, who was vicariously able to love Connor since ''he'' had a soul, [[HeroicSacrifice staked herself so that he could survive]]]].
* Phoebe on ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' arguably had the most far-fetched use of this trope, when her Antichrist-like son was transferred out of her body into the uterus of another woman, The Seer, whom the ''Charmed'' sisters then killed. Pheobe doesn't seem particularly shaken up about it, which makes sense since when the baby controlled her she felt that it wasn't hers nor did it have a soul (which was true, since it was the Seer's own evil spawn) and it absolved her of all the crappy things she did while she was pregnant.

* Curtis from ''Series/{{Misfits}}'' used his gender shifting power and accidentally impregnated himself with some of his own sperm. This left him [[ShapeshifterModeLock unable to turn back into a man]] so he got Seth to remove his power and make him a non-permanence male again.

* The now-infamous ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay'' storyline of the {{Spider-Man}} canon also included [[spoiler: Mary Jane's pregnancy getting aborted as part of the big magic RetCon.]] For irony's sake, Creator/JoeQuesada didn't want Spidey and MJ getting divorced because it might be seen as objectionable... so instead, he whipped up a storyline where a superhero makes a DealWithTheDevil and gets a free abortion in the process.

Nether essence is a tangible gas compared to radiation, but the mutation rate (especially cancer) is exponential compared to lethal doses of radiation.
