Rolling Stone reports, She Wanted An Abortion. Now The Embryo Is Suing Her Doctors: FOUR YEARS AGO in Arizona, a woman had an abortion. She was not ambivalent about the decision: She was upset to learn she was pregnant, scared of giving birth, and she did not want — she had never wanted — children.
