Feminist Jane Caro provides a lame excuse for an unwanted pregnancy and subsequent abortion:

I have had a fairly typical reproductive history for a heterosexual woman of my era — two children, a miscarriage and an abortion.

I have always spoken openly about the abortion I had when I was in my early 20s — not that there was much of a story to tell. 

I was taken off the pill by my doctor because I had stopped having periods altogether and told to use condoms and spermicide for a couple of months. A condom tore, as they often do.
