A mother who was advised that she should terminate her baby at a 24 week scan is suing the National Health Service for negligent medical advice.

The lady was advised at her 24 week scan that her son had only eye and severe brain damage meaning that he had no chance of survival.  On the advice of her doctors she agreed to undergo a drug induced termination.

Five days after taking the drugs she returned to hospital as she was concerned that they did not seem to be working.  She was examined by a neo-natal doctor who advised that they were going to try to deliver the baby.  She went on to deliver a baby boy who was born breathing and kicking with both eyes.

The little boy is now aged 15 months and appears to, other than suffering from a lung condition, be developing as would be expected from any boy his age.
