Woman sues Planned Parenthood and two physicians for failing to adequately abort her pregnancy.
Here’s the basic story: This woman asked for an abortion and went through planned parenthood for it. The first trimester abortion failed, why I don’t know. After all, it’s not that hard to abort a fetus. You basically insert a tool or a vacuum into the uterus and remove the contents. Somehow this fetus survived that. Then, at 20 weeks gestation, she saw another doctor for pelvic pain. Somehow the pregnancy didn’t show and was not detected. She went on to subsequently give birth to a healthy child who is now 2 years old. Some people would call this a miracle, especially the thousands and thousands who struggle with fertility problems their entire lives, but this woman sees her child as a nuisance and feels she shouldn’t have to carry the financial “burden” of paying for the rearing of the child. How obscene. In a just world, a judge would remove the child from this inappreciative woman’s custody and give her to a couple who would raise the child with the love and care that she deserves. Instead, the woman wants financial compensation for her “burden”. One wonders what kind of childhood this little girl will have? Will any amount of money make it a good one? It seems to me that this poor girl is doomed because her mother views her as an unwanted burden. This mother shames women all over the world. What happens if she wins a lot of money and her daughter one day asks "Mom, how did we get all this money?" Hmmm.
However, the fact that Planned Parenthood is being sued brings me a little joy. It’s about time they answered for the things they do, however distorted this case may be. Talk about mixed emotions. There are many, many couples who are waiting to adopt. These are good people who can’t have children of their own and Planned Parenthood has played a substantial role in denying them that privilege through indirect means. I wonder if there is a possible class action suit here? I’m certain there are lawyers who would take that case. Not that class action suits are good, but I couldn’t think of a better target for such litigation.
As for this poor girl, I hope somehow she finds her way. The chips are certainly stacked against her. Her existence is miraculous. If she doesn’t end up on drugs, alcohol or pregnant before she’s 15 via crappy parenting it will truly be another miracle.
