    Boston woman sues for child-rearing costs after failed abortion

    March 7, 2007

    BOSTON --A Boston woman who gave birth after a failed abortion has filed a lawsuit against two doctors and Planned Parenthood seeking the costs of raising her child.

    The complaint was filed by Jennifer Raper, 45, last week in Suffolk Superior Court and still must be screened by a special panel before it can proceed to trial.

    Raper claimed in the three-page medical malpractice suit that she found out she was pregnant in March 2004 and decided to have an abortion for financial reasons.

    Dr. Allison Bryant, a physician working for Planned Parenthood at the time, performed the procedure on April 9, 2004, but it "was not done properly, causing the plaintiff to remain pregnant," according to the complaint.

    It is against the posting rules to condone such behavior. You will probably not hear much. But they are out there. They are out there.

    I could see the legal justification for the case, but the legal justification for it is pure wickedness.

    She paid for a service that was not performed. That's what the bottom line is. However wicked and imoral, selfish & evil we know the whole thing to be. She will get her money, and it''ll hopefully be used in the right way. There's no mention of medical problems for the baby, and that's a miracle. God wanted this one born, and not even man could stop it. :godisgood:

    She should get the money she spent on the surgery, nothing more, in my opinion. If you don't want the expense of babies, don't do the deed. And where's daddy?

    In my opinion, she should be sprayed with the chemicals used in abortions. But that's why I repair electronics, instead of making policy, I guess

    This seems like suing a hitman who didn't perform his "duties."

    I would like to see, however, the abortion doctor lose his license.

    She should get her money for the failed abortion and that is all. I thank God that it failed, and that the child is alive. She will never recoup the cost of raising her unwanted child because she has other options available to her, i.e. adoption, even assigning the child over to be a ward of the state.

    Imagine growing up as this woman's child to find out she not only tried to have you killed, when that was unsuccessful, wanted to be paid to raise you.

    She should do this child a favor and put him up for adoption and just quietly go away.

    Jennifer Raper and her doctor, Dr. Allison Bryant, need to be charged with first degree attempted murder.

    The state should seize custody of the child.

    You cannot do so, as abortion is a legal procedure. That said, this child should have been adopted out. I imagine there are clauses, as with most medical procedures, that medicine is not an exact science, and that sometimes things go wrong. Given that, I don't see how she could win, but you just never know.

    I heard about this on the radio this morning, and found it odd. I have heard of wrongful death lawsuits, but never wrongful birth. Imagine growing up knowing you are a 'wrongful birth'.

    If a woman says she is using birth control to encourage... [the one she's consenting to biological realtions with-- trying to find a term the mods don't strike on this]... then later she tells him she is pregnant with his child, what is he liable for? The cost of an abortion? Any expenses associated with seeking adoptive parents? The entire cost of raising the child? I think we know how the courts would rule on it-- he cannot force her to have an abortion, he could not stop her from having an abortion is she wanted to, and if she keeps the baby he will have to pay to support it no matter what, if any, relationship she still wants with him. But based on your post, what should he be liable for?

    Not really sure what you are getting at here. She paid for a service that didn't work. If she deserves any money at all it would be the expense for the botched procedure because she actually paid for the service. What does that have to do with the father? The father should be liable for child support the same as any other absentee father. The two are not related.

    Currenly malpractice law in Mass. states that doctors can be held accountable for the cost of raising a disabled child due to their negligence. If her child is suffering from complications and/or disability due to the botched abortion personally I think they should have to pay.

    Is having an idiotic parent the same as being disabled? If so, this child could collect every form of disability available.

    I think the baby ought to be given a court-apponted guardian, the woman ought to sue and win, the "clinic" should have to forfeit their malpractice insurance and close, the "doctor" should lose her license, and the money won by the "mother" ought to be awarded to the baby as pain and suffering and then adopted out to a loving family. That would pretty well put everyone in their place.

    Dr. out of work.
    Clinic out of business.
    Mother out of money and unwanted responsibility.
    Baby out of unwanted mother's care with mucho dinero.
