There's a lot of complaining about how unintended pregnancy in romantic comedies is always dealt with by having the baby, even in situations where it's highly unlikely that the protagonists would do that in real life. (Knocked Up and Juno being the big examples.) But it took director Gillian Robespierre and SNL's Jenny Slate to actually make a romantic comedy where abortion is chosen, and it all works out just great. It's called "Obvious Child", and I thought it was really funny. It's just a short film, and well worth watching.
