Many see it to be unethical others see it as a right to their own decisions and body. In “The Hills Like White Elephants” by Ernest Hemingway, an unusual outlook is presented. The girl may want this baby but is being pressured by the man to undergo an operation to terminate the pregnancy.

The setting, characters, and symbolism of the story instate the idea that the couple is at a crossroads.
Humans are naturally social creatures, and need human interaction in order to function properly. The girl rationalizes her current situation by continually asking if the man would still love her. “‘And if I do it you'll be happy and things will be like they were and you'll love me?’ ‘I love you now. You know I love you.’” (Hemingway 3). She does not want to have to abort her unborn child, and continually asks for reassurance in going through with the operation.
There appears to be a lack of sense of responsibility from the couple. No one wants to explicitly say what should be the verdict (though the American suggests that the girl should have an abortion, he then also says that it is her decision to make. This can be seen as the man giving her false power over the matter) because no one wants to be held responsible for commissioning an act which is deemed immoral, especially in America where the issue of abortion was trending with controversy. (Marvin, Olasky, “Abortion News in the late 1920s: A new York City Case Study) When the man is back from fetching the bags, he sits alone by the bar and sees other passengers who are ready to depart and sums it as the reasonable thing to do. This is probably the crux of how the man views the girl.

It was founded by Tiffany Krumins when one of the children she was watching would refuse to take medicine. With a background in medicine, Tiffany knew that many parents faced similar issues and that children weren’t afraid of the medicine, but rather the process. Tiffany set out to solve this issue and was able to create a prototype of Emma the Elephant with some basic supplies from the store such as sponges and fabric.

"Gender-Linked Miscommunication in 'Hills Like White Elephants,'" is Pamela Smiley's critique of Ernest Hemingway's "Hills Like White Elephants" in which she identifies gendered miscommunication between the American man and Jig. Jig is pregnant with the American man's child. However, the American is in search of freedom, which he feels will be lost if the baby is brought into this world. But, for Jig, she expresses subtly, in a gender-linked message, a suggestion that the abortion would have a negative impact upon their lives.
