I just attended a conference on hereditary cancer. One speaker was an attorney who spoke to the legality of informing patients and their potentially affected children/relatives, and potential liability for failure to do so.
One case that actually went to trial was a person who had a genetic defect, who sued his parents doctor for failing to inform them of genetic testing that could have alerted them to the potential condition, and allowed them to abort while still able.
Bottom line is the person is suing the doctor for not giving the parents the needed information to commit abortion, thus resulting in a "wrongful life" suit. The person said he would NOT want to have been born if he knew what he would have! (a close relative to this is when parents of an afflicted child sue their doctor because THEY would not have wanted to give birth to a "defective child"!)
What say the anti-abortion Christians to this? Should a doctor be held liable for not aiding and abetting murder, as I'm to understand? Or should a doctor be held to the standard that they must give information to parents, knowing it will result in abortion most likely? Does an anti-abortion doctor have the right to withhold information if he/she thinks it's "best" for the unborn child?
