Hills Like White Elephants (1927) is a short story by Ernest Hemingway, which is a conversation between a young man and a young woman about abortion without ever using that word.

The young man aggressively talks in his liberal style in attempting to persuade, even coerce, the young woman to have an abortion. Fed up with his never-ending liberal claptrap, the young woman finally responds:

Would you please please please please please please please stop talking?[1]

The young woman apparently chooses pro-life rather than abortion.

Now in the public domain, this short story is only 1,455 words long and can be read in merely 10 minutes.[1]
