Parents Sue After They Aborted Baby Test Showed Would be Disabled The Test Was Wrong LifeNews.com

In a new lawsuit, parents are suing because the child is already dead — having been aborted because the baby was wrongly diagnosed as potentially disabled.

After three miscarriages, Colleen Abbott finally had a viable pregnancy and were told they were having a girl. Doctors performed an amniocentesis and eventually the couple got the results and they were not good — they were informed the baby, a boy, might be intersex and have a genetic disorder.

“They gave her a choice: Abort the baby or take the chance of having a monster,” David Johns, the family’s lawyer said.
The couple decided to have an abortion, and that’s when thing really took a turn for the worst.

In what can only be described as tragic timing, a day after the procedure to stop the baby’s heart and a day before Colleen would go into labor, the lab where Colleen’s amniocentesis had been analyzed called to report there had been a mistake. A secretary had mistakenly typed “XY” instead of “XX” in the gender field, an error that Colleen’s lawyer contends “was the first step in the long slide downward.”

An autopsy of the fetus showed none of the defects mentioned during the ultrasound.

The Abbotts sued the lab, the hospital, her doctors, and the genetic counselor, alleging the decision to terminate her pregnancy had been caused by the negligence of each, and was set in motion by the improperly transcribed FISH results. The jury found the lab and its director had been negligent, but stopped short of attributing fault for the abortion itself, refusing to award damages for the Abbotts’ physical and emotional injuries. The verdict was upheld in an appeals court in February.

Happens all the time. A friend of mine refused an abortion several times that her doctor tried talking her into stating that the baby had Down syndrome. Baby was born and guess what ... It didn't. Oops. Good thing she didn't listen to the doctor.
