Australian "Wrongful Life" Case

See this article, which begins:

THE High Court has been asked to decide whether severely disabled children can sue over medical negligence which resulted in their birth rather than abortion.

In a landmark hearing, two disabled children, one now a young woman and the other a three-year-old girl, are seeking the right to sue their mothers' doctors for wrongful life.

One of the claims has been brought by Sydney woman Alexia Harriton, 24, who was born deaf, blind, physically and mentally disabled and not expected to live more than six months.
