An English woman with spina bifida is suing her mother’s former doctor for millions of dollars in health care costs and damages claiming that she should never have been born. Evie Toombes, a 20-year-old equestrian show jumper from Lincolnshire, is suing her mother’s general practitioner, Dr. Philip Mitchell, for “wrongful conception” after he allegedly failed to advise her mother to take folic acid supplements before getting pregnant that she claims resulted in her birth defect, according to The Telegraph. Toombes was diagnosed with lipomyelomeningocele after her birth in November 2001, a neural tube defect to the spine.


At least there's one bright spot to this story. This type of insanity isn't just limited to the U.S. We've got plenty of company.

Generally, suits alleging 'wrongful life', have been denied by the courts. Modern jurists have trended away from that position but then modern judges have permitted trials for foolish claptrap almost reoutinely now under the guise that 'everyone is entitled to their day in court'. If the doctor had missed some available therapy which could have prevented the birth defect then he would possibly be liable but since only death is available to 'prevent' spina bifida once discovered in utero I hope the judge does the right thing.

This young lady should just shut up. I do not feel sorry for her or for her mother. 20 yrs ago all women who became were aware of the need for folic acid. It is the women of my generation who did not know. Once it became known what caused spinabifada women were advise to take folic acid...or at least prenatal vitamins. IF that mother did not do so, let the mother and daughter settle up. But I am appalled at a 20 yr old being so callus and ungrateful for her 1) life and 2) being about the jump horse. What the heck is wrong with her. If she is disgusted with life....leave. What a spoiled brat. I hold contempt for her and anyone who is pushing this crap.

this is just a case of some lawyer using the young lady in an attempt to set precedent. The young lady has nithing to lose and gets her 15 minutes if fane and the lawyer sees a large monetary reward (he'll get a karge %) and the possibility of a lucrative practice filing such suits. My dad commented decades ago that we have too many lawyers and that's why tge "chase ambulances" and I have commented many times that our legislatures are mostly lawyers which write ambiguous laws which create business opportunities for their lawyer children. A self propagating system.

She is a competitive show jumper riding horses, and she is trying to blame her mom's doctor for something that he really had no control over? I would have thought that being a competitive show jumper would be excruciating on her back with that condition. Shame on that solicitor for taking her case. But then, the business of anything horse related is expensive. No wonder she is hoping for a windfall.

Confusing "claim". Lipomyelomeningocele appears fundamentally different from that of other neural tube defects, as it is not reduced in incidence by folic acid supplementation. But what do I know...

Former “Empire” star Jussie Smollett got combative as he finished testifying Tuesday in his alleged bogus-race-hate case, which was headed for closing arguments and potential jury deliberations Wednesday. The prosecution finished its cross-examination after grilling the embattled snippy actor on the stand for another two and half hours, following his previous five hours of testimony the day before. Before the judge called it a day in anticipation of closing arguments, jurors also heard from the Lyft driver who ferried around the brothers Smollett allegedly hired to help him pull off the ruse.

Fired CNN host Chris Cuomo is set to sue the network if it balks at paying him at least $18 million to cover what’s left on his contract, sources told The Post on Monday. Cuomo, 51, has hired lawyers and is preparing to file the lawsuit over the remainder of the four-year contract he signed last year — after a bitter back-and-forth about what the network knew of his secret efforts to aid his embattled brother, then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, said sources familiar with the matter. His contract was reportedly worth $6 million annually, leaving between $18 million and $20 million that he would be owed

The decision on who to honor as this week’s top knucklehead was a relatively easy one, for a change, with the only real competition being provided by our two honorable mentions. Fredo Cuomo’s suspension from CNN is so improbable, the choice was an easy one. But before we examine the justification for Fredo’s selection, let’s pause for a moment to consider how far the House of Cuomo has fallen in such a short period of time.

In a shortened holiday week like this one, we might expect there would be fewer candidates for KOTW. Virtually all Americans spent Thursday with their families where presumably the only opportunities to display someone’s knuckleheadedness was to their loved ones in a private setting. Similarly, Friday is traditionally spent either relaxing, or perhaps kicking off the holiday shopping season. Therefore, we could assume that with two less days for public idiocy we would see less of it: but that assumption would be incorrect.

Mayor Bill de Blasio sprung a COVID-19 vaccine mandate on all private businesses in New York City on Monday—drawing immediate rebuke from trade groups and some fellow elected officials who said the backbone of the Big Apple was “blindsided” by the stunning move.

Kathryn Wylde, head of the business group Partnership for NYC, blasted the mayor’s announcement. “There’s no forewarning, no discussion, no idea about whether it’s legal or who he expects to enforce it,” she said.

With a massive build of Russian troops near Ukraine’s border, Russia’s Vladimir Putin is indicating a willingness to risk a military conflict, but analysts say while the threat is serious, an invasion is not certain. The threat of an invasion will be the central subject of President Biden’s video call with Putin on Tuesday. Biden is expected to warn of dire consequences should Russia follow through with a military offensive, while Putin is expected to reiterate his ultimatum that NATO should not allow Ukraine to join its military alliance. The outcome of the video call could have major implications as Putin weighs the potential costs of a full-fledged invasion of Ukraine.

(Tweet/Video) Tlaib is a perfect example of how federal bailouts of student loans would actually benefit the rich. It’s not just the poor taking out loans. Students from families earning more than $114,000 a year borrow at the same rate as the lowest-income students — and they take out loans nearly twice as large. Students with advanced degrees — lawyers, doctors and others — account for 40% of all student debt.
