Quoting Rebekah Garden x3:" Just curious, does anyone know how far along she was?"

No I didn't see that anywhere.

Aren't you supposed to get checked after an abortion exactly for this reason, to make sure it was done properly? There would be no way for it to be too late at that point unless she had the original/failed procedure done at the last possible moment.

By the way I just read she is seeking 25k for pain and suffering because she was in the ER so much as a result of her condition.

She could have originally found out at 11 weeks she was pregnant, had the procedure and a week later it would have been too late (in Ohio)

Personally, I think she went through with it on procedure day but never went back for a follow-up.

If she didn't return for the follow up visit, then she's just as much at fault as the clinic. Clinics mandate post abortion follow up exams to prevent situations like this, and I highly doubt that the clinic didn't stress the importance of returning for the exam when she was there for the first time.

Then that's her own fault. I hate to be harsh about it but it's the truth.

I read a different article so this one may not have the same info. But she had the same problem with her son and if she knew she didn't want to go though that again I don't understand why she wouldn't have gotten her tubes tied. She decided to continue the pregnancy so she is decided to put her life in danger. I don't know a lot about abortion but in her case I would think she could have it done at a hospital since her life was at risk. I feel really bad for this poor child who will think her whole life that she was never wanted.

It depends on if they violated the standard of care.

So is she keeping her little 'miracle' or what?

Yes see kept her. The story I read even had a family picture with it.

I doubt that I'd sue, because the last thing this child needs to undig as a teenager is proof that her parents not only tried to abort her, but sued the doctor because they were so upset that the abortion wasn't successful.



That said...I also have a double uterus. I was told that the lesser developed one won't sustain a pregnancy long, that any pregnancy in that one would result in a miscarriage, but no one EVER told me it would put my life in danger - and yes, I sure as hell asked. I'd love to know why her doctor felt this.

I was wondering the same thing. My aunt has a double uterus also and had three kids, all born at least 4wks premature but no one ever told her she could die.

My kids were born at 42, 37, and 39 weeks...so far, there hasn't even been a preemie. We're expecting this one to come about a month and a half early, but for reasons completely unrelated to the double uterus.
