Woman kills herself after abortion, never told there was no baby

A book on post-abortion women cited the following case from The Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology:

“An 18-year-old female underwent suction curettage for a suspected pregnancy at 8 weeks duration. She committed suicide three days after the procedure, having expressed guilt about having killed her baby. There had been no pregnancy tissue in the suction specimen, but the patient was never told this.”
