Woman, 27, who has had SEVENTEEN abortions in six years may never be able to have children in the future after doctors find her uterus lining 'as thin as paper'
A young woman in China has been told by doctors she might never be able to have babies in the future after undergoing 17 abortions in six years.
It is said that the woman's womb was so badly damaged after all the procedures that her uterus lining was 'as thin as a piece of paper,' according to a doctor at the Shiyan Maternity and Child Health Care Hospital.
The patient, known by a pseudonym Xiao Ju, has been in a relationship with her boyfriend for six years and the couple don't use contraception, reportedly Shiyan Evening News.
The woman claimed to the doctors that she was not ready to get married and was not capable of raising a child, therefore she had decided to terminate all pregnancies, said the report.
Any babies born out of wedlock in China will not be issued an ID, which means they will not be entitled to state benefits or the right to receive education.

I don't think either of them understand the full ramifications of their actions.

Sex ed is indeed zero in China. I had a colleague from there. She said that when she got married, she and her husband had to read a book to learn how to conceive. So it would not be surprising if they don't know how to prevent conception either.

You don't have to have a sex education to know that sex causes pregnancy, at the very least they should have figured it out by now! Also I find it hard to believe that not once have any of those doctors (especially since they know that she has repeatedly returned to this same hospital) tried to supply her with birth control and at least some education!? I don't see how anyone could have a valid reason for choosing to do this 17 times!

Is birth control allowed in China?
