DC Comics 1987.

Batman teams up with Ra’s Al Ghul, to battle Qayin (i.e. Cain). Batman marries Talia (who appears when Batman is injured, and already at the point where Alfred and Bruce trusts her with their secret). She is pregnant with Bruce’s child.

Qayin wants to get at Ra’s Lazarus Pit (he’s dying of cancer). Invades Ra’s stronghold. In the ensuring battle, Batman becomes overly protective of Talia and their unborn child. Qayin is defeated in the end. Talia suffers an abortion due to the stress of combat. She divorces Batman. But in the closing pages, it’s hinted that she faked the abortion. The child is given up for adoption.
