Couple who said they 'would have aborted daughter if they knew she had Down's syndrome' sue hospital for $2.9 million and win.

Victory for couple who said they 'would have aborted daughter if they knew she had Down's syndrome' as jury forces hospital to pay $2.9million following botched test

* A prenatal test showed couple's daughter would be 'normal and healthy'
* Shocked when blood tests after the birth confirmed the baby had Down's
* Botched test 'had taken sample from the mother rather than the foetus'
* Say they love their daughter - but have received death threats over the case



A couple who sued a hospital for not telling them their unborn child has Down's syndrome has been awarded a $2.9million payout.

Ariel and Deborah Levy, who say they would have had an abortion if they had known the child would be disabled, claimed they needed the money to pay for their daughter Kalanit's lifelong care.

And a jury agreed, deciding on Friday that Oregon's Legacy Health hospital had been negligent in failing to diagnose the condition in a pre-natal scan.

The hospital is considering appealing the verdict, but the Levys' lawyer urged them to 'let this case finally come to an end'.

The couple from Portland, who have two other children, said in a lawsuit they would have aborted their daughter Kalanit - who is now four - if they had known she had Down's syndrome.

Although they say they love Kalanit and treat her the same as their other children, the Levys demanded a huge payout from the hospital to pay for the extra medical care she requires.

They accused the hospital of being 'negligent in their performance, analysis and reporting' after misreading Mrs Levy's ultrasound scan.

Their lawyer David Miller said the parents had launched their lawsuit in an effort to care for Kalanit better.

^this

Treatment and care is going to be expensive, time consuming, and extremely stressful on the parents. And I doubt they are actually going to see all that money

When animals give birth to babies and those babies are deformed, they leave those babies to die. People like this couple are animalistic when it comes to their morality.

Well I cant hate on it.

But I have a feeling they really want the kid to die so that they can ball out with their normal kids.

I agree with this.

It's hard to think about but I've seen middle age adults walking their disabled teenager around stores in a wheelchair.. kid ain't even there or knows what's going on, they're just alive, stuck in a body making random noises or screaming. I wouldn't want that for my child nor for myself. That's not how you should have to raise a child and it's no ones fault

Though, at the same time if the hospital lied and told me my kid didn't have downs syndrome and they were born with it. I would sue, but I would also keep the child. I don't have the guts to put my own born seed up for adoption

can't believe this thread.

if you had a down syndrome baby, wouldn't you think it happened for a reason?

Yea cause we're not mammals right?

Wonder what makes more sense, leaving your useless offspring or raising a useless person that will be unable to contribute at all while draining on society....

fu*k your "morals"
