Abortions was a fanzine published by Kenneth J. Krueger (1926-2009).

Published in Buffalo, New York, U.S.A., the first seven issues of Abortions appeared between mid-1951 and Winter of 1952. The seventh issue was titled "Abby". The final issue didn't come out until 1955, and consisted entirely of blank pages.

Contributions of writing included poetry by Sandy Charnoff, Raymond L. Clancy (in each of the first seven issues), Gilbert Cochrum, Doris R. Currier, T.P. Hadley, Walt Klein, Don J. Nardizzi, Marilyn R. Venable, and I.J. Wolf. The third issue also reprinted John Polidori's classic Gothic poem "The Vampyre." Raymond Clancy also had fiction in at least two issues, and the seventh issue carried a story by Robert Silverberg (Spaceship).

Contributors of art work included W. Max Keasler (Opus), among others.

Kenneth J. Krueger also published the fanzine Space Trails and the poetry anthology Starbound.
