Abstract : Based on a sociological survey about women having aborted in the last ten years in France and Quebec, this research reveals contraceptive norm in these two societies, specially the strong opposition made by all women – even those who aborted several times – between “good” birth control practices: contraception and “bad” one: abortion. Although abortion is a structural data of women’s reproductive trajectories, a practice today without risk to their health and an ordinary act when defeated moral burden associated with it, termination of pregnancy continues to be subject to a set of social representations still stigmatizing. Also, analysis of women's experiences accounts for all elements that color the experience of one or more abortions. If the decision to abort is obvious to all women, when they are involved in competing activities (education, career or breeding and feeding of an infant), it can become more difficult when corresponds to the refusal of their partner to invest a parental project they carry alone. Finally, put into perspective the terms of the support outlined by women in Paris and Montreal , reveals the many obstacles that can make this a more complicated or painful episode, showing reluctance in these two societies to think this practice as an ordinary act of birth planning falling mainly in the health field.
