Australian Cerebral Palsy Lawsuit & Past Abortion (4/04)

AUSTRALIAN CEREBRAL PALSY LAWSUIT TOUCHES ON HOW ABORTION HURTS WOMEN

 

This case is spotlighting the devastating consequences that can arise from an abortion. Justice Grove has ruled that Kristy was born with brain damage as a result of her mother's uterine rupture — an apparent complication from a previous abortion.

As a result, the girl's family has lost their bid to sue the mother's obstetrician for negligence.

Grove said, "Kristy's plight was not a consequence of a breach of duty of care by the defendant," obstetrician Dr. Alan Kaye. Kristy, who is now 15, was born with cerebral palsy.

She is confined to a wheelchair and cannot speak.

Her family tried to sue her mother's obstetrician, claiming he miscalculated her expected due date.

As a result, the family claimed, Kristy was born between two-and-a-half and six weeks overdue, causing the placenta to deteriorate, a condition known as "placental insufficiency."

However, the justice noted that the after-effect of the mother's abortion was a more likely cause. [12Apr04 http://www.lifenews.com/nat438.html]
