Please answer all five.
1. Is it legal in your state?
2. Is it justified?
3. Do you think it effects your or your child's healthcare in anyway, such as cost or services offered?
4. With the 2010 elections, would this subject be a reason why you vote for a particular candidate for Gov, sen. rep. etc?
5. What other birth/child medical related lawsuits are you for or against, such as having the right to sue because you torn while having vaginal birth?

Not sure if its legal in my state.
No. Birth defects are are RISK you take when you get pregnant. NO medical test is fool proof. Everyone knows that, and there is no way to know 100% one way or the other if the diagnosis' in those tests is accurate. I cant tell you how many people I have met over the yrs who have told me their test said the baby would have downs....and it didnt.
No, because its not a choice. Even if you choose to ignore the tests, there is still the chance the test is wrong and its not something the baby chose to have.....like new boobs or something.

I dont know if it would be a big issue for me. Would have to see where they stood and go from there.
As for all the things you can/should sue for...THAT is why ins is SO expensive. I think there is an inherent risk you take when you get pregnant. There are many things that can go wrong and most of them are out of the hands of drs. Now, when my SIL went to have her 3rd they tried to force a vag delivery after 2 c sections. Her Dr had already told her that THAT could cause internal bleeding for her but her dr wasnt there and she couldnt get them to listen....now if THAT had ended badly I think they should have been sued. I think if they knowingly endanger you or the baby then YES sue...but tearing?? REALLY? You can sue for that?
