    Summary

    What would have happened if several famous characters had gotten an abortion?

    Inspired by The Toast article by Mallory Ortberg http://the-toast.net/2014/10/16/fictional-characters-gotten-abortions/

    I was inspired because I have grown up Catholic, a very anti-abortion Catholic, but as I got older I found that some things aren't so cut and dry as "Choose Life" or "It's a Baby, Not A Choice". I also wanted more stories of different women told along with sticking it to my repressive girlhood, it's a fair question to ask: what would happen if these characters had an abortion? No woman makes a difficult choice freely, she has to weigh her options and the consequences and figure what works better for her in the long run. This could be my 2nd most controversial work since "Mark Darcy Got Punk'd", that was with ONE fandom and it was a farce, this covers many fandoms and I might ruffle feathers, even if said feathers proclaim themselves to be Pro-Choice. Before you yell at me for giving these women abortions, try to save that anger for why anyone would have to consider it. The tough part is that I'm writing this anthology as a Virgin who never had sex or gotten pregnant much less aborted. So read and I hope you think.

    Summary

    I found it interesting that the Mad Men episode this season in which Marti Noxon and Cathryn Humphris collaborated should turn out the be the most soap operatic episode yet. I couldn't help thinking about two other stories Noxon and Humphris had penned, "New Moon Rising" and "Sex and Violence" respectively.
