“Hills Like White Elephants”Is a short story Written by Ernest Hemingway, symbolize the debate of abortion. Hemingway conveys this message cryptically by keeping the actual discussion of abortion out of the short story.
Does the girl in the story stay in her relationship with the man? I believe the girl stay with her partner and keeps the baby. The dialogue between the two shows that the woman starts to realize that she doesn't want to abort the baby on page 477 around the end she says "No, it isn't. And once they take it away, you never get it back." Hitting at the fact that she wants to keep the baby. As well the author mentions a beaded curtain multiple times to show its significance of the two beads, which are held together by a thread, symbolize the relationship that a mother has for her child. If you look at page 478, you can see that even at one point the man Starts questioning whether or not that he wants her to keep the baby. You also need to look at the time of year it is in the story; it based in 1920 where abortions were a crime and a sin. Likewise women heavy depended on men to support them. Women didn't get the same opportunities that men had. Women couldn't go to school or were allowed to work, they had to stay home and take care of the children. This is why I think she stay and had the baby.
