Lawsuit: Medical mistake led to wrongful pregnancy

A 40-year-old mother of three felt she was doing the responsible thing by taking steps to prevent the birth of a fourth child, who would be likely to inherit sickle cell disease. Sickle cell disease is a condition in which the blood cells, instead of being soft and round, are C-shaped and hard. When they flow through the vessels, they tend to clump together, causing pain and increasing the chances of infections and stroke.

A large percentage of the population has their wisdom teeth removed during childhood. In most cases, the results aren’t anything to talk about. The patient may go home with some sore gums, nausea or inflammation commonly referred to as dry socket. The truth is that wisdom teeth extraction is still a surgical procedure, and one that left a family mourning the loss of their teenage boy.
