Mother wants £250,000 for failed abortion

This is a first!

A mother who gave birth to a twin girl after an abortion failed is suing the hospital for £250,000 to help bring up her daughter.

Stacy Dow discovered she was expecting twins when she was 16 and decided, because of her age and inability to support a child, to have an abortion.
The procedure was carried out when she was around seven weeks pregnant and she was given a contraceptive injection afterwards.

She was told it could cause side-effects, including weight gain, but when she returned to her doctor after 33 weeks she was told she had put on weight because one of the twins had survived. She gave birth to her daughter, Jayde, who is now three, in August 2001 at Perth Royal Infirmary, and is suing Tayside University NHS Trust in a legal action believed to be the first of its kind in Britain.
Miss Dow, now 20, who lives with her parents, Douglas, 40, and Barbara, 41, in Perth, said: "They told me in the hospital that the operation had been successful and there was nothing left in the womb.
"I never had any reason to doubt that and I just put my weight gain and a lack of periods down to the contraceptive injection they gave me.
"When I got to 33 weeks I went to the GP again and he told me I was pregnant. I was absolutely stunned. I didn't know what to say or do. It was obviously too far on to do anything.......

......"I had no option but to go through with the birth. I had never been given any warning that the termination might not work properly. I only had a few weeks to prepare for Jayde's arrival. I just couldn't get my head around it. I had never even considered having children. I was too young.
"Although I love her to bits, I have a child now that I wasn't planning to have and I believe the hospital should take some responsibility.....

I have one Question, For people who opt for abortion who say they have no choice...

Adoption used to be a choice for a lot of girls who found themselves with unwanted pregnancies. There are hundreds of Loving Couples who cannot have their own kids, who would be willing to open their hearts to a baby!
That old excuse about not having a choice is getting old. Even in the case of ANGELE and Baby ROWAN she had a choice of carrying the baby to term and giving him up for adoption. The couples who wish to adopt, also go as far as paying the moms expenses so there is NO burden to her financially and NO reason to Abort.
