    A Missouri couple filed a lawsuit Sept. 28 against four defendants for a birth gone horribly wrong. The New York Daily News reports Friday that Arteisha Betts and Travis Ammonette of Florissant, Mo., claim their newborn son, Kaden Travis Ammonette, died while in the birth canal. The baby's head was allegedly decapitated from its neck when the doctor tried pulling the baby out of the birth canal.

    Why the fuck are 21 & 20 year old un-married people even involved with in-vitro? Who paid for that? Sounds like Octomom in the making.

    That being said, I do feel bad for their loss.

    They wouldn't have been had this not recently happened

    "The Missouri Supreme Court has overturned a key provision in a Republican-backed “tort reform” law that limited the amount of money people could win in medical malpractice lawsuits. In a 4-3 decision Tuesday, the high court said the 2005 law violated the right to a jury trial by capping noneconomic damages in medical malpractice cases at $350,000."

    How do you feel about that, Mlaw?

    I resent any law that caps the amount of money a person can be awarded for damages. It allows death to be reduced down to a maximum dollar figure. So long as the hospitals can afford "that" number, they can get away with anything.

    Same thing with airlines. They calculate how much it would cost to pay off all the families of crash victims and then they figure out how much it would cost to make the airplane safe.

    Paying off the families is always cheaper.
