My thoughts are with her child. To find out you were an accident is hard enough. At least most of us accidents know our parents love us, and consider us happy surprises. This poor kid's two years old and her mom's still pissed the abortion failed.

Well, they obviously didn't render the service. She should win, as far as I'm concerned. But I'm no lawyer.

I pity the child, assuming she ever finds out. Hell, it's somewhat traumatic to learn you were unwanted in the "accidental but born" sense, in my experience, but to be aborted...

reality here in cyberspace and on this board, that is the true oxymoron.Actually, the reality of the effectiveness, or lack thereof, of birth control can be very clearly proven on this board. As I recall, we have at least one member who has, or will soon have, a child, after he was vasectomized, and his wife's tubes were tied.

I know a couple of people in real life who've had pregnancies while on the pill, one of them on the pill with the man using a condom.

They should make her a settlement. If she accepts the money then she should be forced to give up the kid for adoption....never to contact it again. This woman is an idiot.

In theory... all of this could have been avoided and the kid could have a better life if she would have just offered the kid up for adoption prior to all of this BS.

Throw out the question of the morality of abortion for the moment, and consider it from a legal standpoint. (Because at this point, abortion is legal, nothing to argue about in that sense...)

Simply put, a medical procedure was not done properly. Should the doctor be held accountable for that failure or not?

I don't get the reasoning for suing the second doctor, the one who gave her a physical or whatever. She may have simply told him that she couldn't be pregnant, and he didn't look for it. But the original abortion was obviously not done properly. Should someone answer for that or not?

I think I know her, first name bad? I wonder how she's doing. The last time I saw her, well - I should keep my comments "PG" rated, but it was a good night.


I'm sure our story wouldn't fit here, I had my vasectomy already.
















(actually had it reversed too, if you remember me talking about being worried that I had to whack it in a cup a few weeks ago, I still don't have swimmers, so yup, luck is a bitch. Now we are exploring options for In Vitro, so we wasted 10K already and now we get to spend another 20, for a brat that will just grow up to resent us because I didn't buy the upgraded Playstation 15, and this one who didn't want a kid, had one - dammit carl)

The more I think about this, the more it appears to be a fraudulent money grab. There is such a thing as an alternative to raising your child...it's called adoption.

Sorry to hear that, hopefully the In Vitro will be a viable solution.

My girlfriend already has 3 kids (all with the same guy, she was married for 10 years), so let's just say we're not taking many chances, her being Fertile Myrtle and all. It's still a little scary though, because nothing is 100%. I don't think we'd have an abortion at this point, but we would certainly discuss it. Because, well, both of us think 3 is enough. But I've never had a kid. I'd hate to want one in 5 or 6 years and find something medically wrong, induced by the procedure.

Although I think one or both of us has a problem with the plumbing as it is, the amount of sex we've had and her history.

But I digress. *cough*

Not all women stop having their period (plus she was edging close to menopause age), and if she didn't gain much weight she may not have known. She had thought she'd gotten an abortion after all. Doesn't change the fact that adoption was still an option if she didn't want to raise a child.

They can't have it both ways on the abortion front. If they want to claim that the fetus was not a legal human being until birth, what right does the fetus have if it somehow lives to make it outside the womb? If anything she can sue for the cost of the abortion, but they can't be liable for the expenses involved with raising the child.

My wife has been pregnant twice and I just don't see any way how you couldn't know that you are pregnant. Around the 3rd trimester, things got very uncomfortable for her. And how do you explain the baby moving around in the uterus? Obviously I've never experienced it but I just don't understand how someone wouldn't notice some obvious physiological effects of being pregnant.

The morality of abortion is not the issue. Whether she should've sought adoption is not the issue. None of that is pertinent. This is simply a legal question. Abortion is a legal procedure, and the procedue was bothched. Should the doctor and/or clinic responsible for that failed procedure answer or not?

I suggest she just give her mother a really late term abortion and jump off of a tall building.

How about the kid who knows him/herself to be "the baby mommy tried to kill but was too dumb to die"...so mommy wanted money.

Here's a thought...give the kid to an adopting family who would actually want to love it.

1) I think the female's responsibility is a little greater, for obvious physical anatomy reasons.


2) you have all the power in the sexual relationship, so you should have more responsibility also.



You know the old adage, a guy looks in the mirror while getting ready to go out and says "I hope I get laid tonight" / the girl getting ready says, "I am going to get laid tonight"

I don't really feel like I have all the power. We won't have a baby until Aces is ready too. Yes, I have more responsibility right now as I'm the one on the Pill, but I'd like to think that's shared once we do decide to concieve.
