The relationship is revealed by a conversation between a man and a woman, a topic of conversation that people rarely discussed in the period that the story was set. After researching interpretations, it is consistently said “She is pregnant, and he wants her to have an abortion” (Weeks 76), to which I agree that this conversation is about abortion. With the man seemingly pushing the topic and the girl hesitant and questionable, it is unsure as to the result of their conversation. However, it is my belief that she chose to follow her heart and not get the abortion.
Though Hemingway’s “Hills Like White Elephants” has received a plethora of examination and analysis, the story has been left open for a reader’s interpretation. However, through the information and dialogue given, it is complicated to ignore the result that Hemingway was trying to achieve. He illustrates that a white elephant can be more than just an unwanted Christmas gift or a prized possession from Asia.

He just slapped her around a bit to show he was boss” (146).
The man violates both the Maxim of Quality and Maxim of Quantity: he says what is not true, and he repeats the same sense three times.

He is trying to win the girl’s trust so that she will agree to have an abortion. But his words are feeble, only making the girl angry at him. Therefore, in the seventh part the girl keeps asking whether the man will love her or he really wants to do so.
1. Giving birth to a child is a girl’s happiest moment. However, sometimes things don’t go as they are expected to go. Sometimes for some reasons girl’s have to go through abortion. In the story, “Hills Like White Elephants”, the man seems to want the girl to have an abortion as he says, “They just let air in…”(205) The man tries to convince the girl physically and mentally to have the abortion by telling her, “I know you wouldn’t mind it…They just let the air in and then it’s all perfectly natural”(205).

The binary between casual and intellectual is how McDonalds is working to sell their brand. After a couple of seconds of being disgusted at McDonalds, both women get excited by the fact that they can be casual while still getting the same type of beverages.
