NEW YORK — A woman who was sterilized has reportedly filed a "wrongful pregnancy" claim seeking the entire cost of rearing her 3-year-old daughter, it was reported.
KellyAnne Marie O'Toole was born in November, 1981, two months after her parents, Brian and Susanne O'Toole, filed a malpractice claim against the doctors who performed the sterilization and the hospital where it was done, the New York Times reported in today's editions.
What distinguishes the case from others is that the O'Tooles are asking the defendants to pay for rearing KellyAnne until she becomes an adult.
Ruling Likely This Week
The case is now before the Court of Appeals, the state's highest court, which is expected to make a ruling this week.
