Family Planning Botched Abortion, Minor Says

LOS ANGELES (CN) – Doctors at a Family Planning clinic left a 16- to 18-week fetus inside a minor abortion patient, but told her the procedure had been successful, the patient and her guardian claim in Superior Court. The girl says she “screamed” and had to be rushed to a hospital after the fetus “was expelled into the toilet” the next day.

After two days of abortion procedures, the patient says Family Planning clinic workers assured her that the fetus had been successfully aborted. But the next day, she allegedly “started cramping and contracting.”

“She proceeded to sit on the toilet at her home and the fetus was expelled into the toilet,” the lawsuit states.

She claims she “saw the fetus coming out and screamed, causing (her guardian) and other family members to rush to her assistance.”

The girl’s guardian “pulled the fetus including the head and fetal structures from the neck down which were distorted out of the toilet,” according to the lawsuit.

The patient and her guardian are suing the Family Planning Associates Medical Group for medical malpractice and negligence infliction of emotional distress, claiming the ordeal caused “irreparable, serious personal and emotional injuries and damages.”

They demand compensation for the “great mental pain” the minor allegedly suffered, along with payment for their medical and incidental expenses.

They are represented by Bradley Snyder with Snyder Dorenfeld
