This is a horrifying story with a happy ending.

A British woman was told that she had suffered a miscarriage. The couple was told in June that their baby had died at about eight weeks in utero. The docs offered her abortifacients but the woman declined, saying she preferred to do it naturally.

A month later after nothing occured the woman was stunned to discover that the baby was still alive. Needless to say, the couple was both incredibly happy and really really ticked.

A news report shows:

The couple were elated to learn she was still pregnant, but furious with the hospital for the mistake.

“They could have aborted my baby while it was alive,” Kent told the Daily Mail. “How can the hospital make a mistake like that?”

Kent is due to give birth to the baby girl in February.

So a happy ending to a horrible story.

But it makes me wonder how often does something like this occur that we don’t know about because the mother agrees to taking an abortifacient. That’s a pretty scary thought.

The good news is that I’m sure after the lawsuit, the kid won’t have to worry about taking out student loans to go to college.
