The following sentence appears in an article on Vox about how abortion is
portrayed on television:

In “Before and After,” which aired in 1996, 16-year-old Julia gets pregnant
with her high school boyfriend.

I imagine that the delivery, not to mention the relationship, would have
been extremely difficult.
