Doctor Ordered To Pay Child Support After He Botches Abortion
A Spanish doctor has been ordered to pay $1300 a month in child support and almost $200,000 in damages after he failed to properly perform an abortion.
The baby was born healthy after a full nine-month term despite the doctor’s performance of a surgical abortion to terminate the pregnancy, Spanish newspaper Diario de Mallorca reported Wednesday.
The boy is now 18 months old.
The mother, 24, didn’t find out the abortion had failed until three months later, at which point it was too late to repeat the procedure.
