Woman left 'infertile' after having 17 abortions. Opinions?

A 27-year-old woman has been told she may never be able to have children after having 17 abortions

Doctors say the woman may now be infertile because her uterus is so badly damaged after all the procedures.

Zhao Qin, head of gynaecology at Shiyan Maternity and Child Health Care Hospital in China, said she had implored the pregnant woman to keep her child - because it may have been her last chance at motherhood.

However, the 27-year-old insisted on the procedure, leaving Zhao and her colleagues no choice but to perform what was the patient's 17th abortion in just six years.

The woman had her first abortion when she was 21, the year she began dating her current boyfriend of six years, with whom she apparently does not use any contraception.

Since then, medics say she has become a "regular customer" at the hospital's gynaecology department, averaging nearly three abortions per year.
