Woman loses her ability to have children after her abortion

In an amicus brief filed for the Supreme Court, a  post-abortion woman named Penny :

“I was talked to about my blood type, whether or not I was anemic, and asked whether or not I wanted to be able to have kids after. I cannot and have not been able to have kids at all even though I have always wanted them. I’ve lost that which makes me a woman and a mother. For the first 2 years, I was so depressed all I wanted to do was die. I tried to commit suicide twice.”
