If I believed a company acted to suppress or misinterpret the information, yes I'd sue.

To me it's no difference than being told by what you believe is a competent doctor that you haven't an illness when in fact you do...the delay in treatment...

Or them removing the wrong limb...



This case basically says its okay to abort the handicapped.

What if the couple claimed they would have aborted the child if they knew the child was female but the ultrasound people botched it and told them the child was male? Okay to sue then? Where do you draw the line?

it is OK to abort. Period.

Having a handicapped child is a huge financial burden,
so holding the hospital responsible for these cost makes sense.
If the child werethe wrong sex, it would not affect the cost of the upbringing.

Holy Handicapped Batman - it's crazy out there Hobo

In fact, this is SO confusing (even to those who HAVE disabilities - for they cannot agree either) Could we maybe just get back to the LAW SUIT........... ??

Confused

Perhaps this what-is and what-is-not PC deserves its very own thread?

I see lots of disabled veteran plates on cars around here...must not be too awful of a word. And I doubt that few return their disability checks because they are offended.

See here they are, the bruises, some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Well, I'll put it this way. I'm prejudice against the religious on this. If any religious person resigns themself to death because they believe there is an afterlife or "something better" than this life, then eff that. No, they shouldn't be allowed to die because they have been tricked into believing the whole lie of the afterlife. It's like murder by influence.

If a person is making an informed decision, knowing that there is no afterlife, I think they are very much making the biggest mistake of their lives, but I think they more or less have the right to do with their lives as they want.

I think most religions view suicide as a one way ticket to hell anyways.

I honestly have no idea. But probably Smile

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.
