Israel: Parents who would have aborted their children can still sue

Israelis born with birth defects can no longer sue their doctors because they were not aborted; now their parents have to wish their disabled children had never been born instead. That’s the ruling of the Israeli Supreme Court, which voted to end the filing of “wrongful life” lawsuits but allow limited “wrongful birth” lawsuits, reports LifeSiteNews.com.

Monday’s decision comes in the face skyrocketing “wrongful life” lawsuits, which have quadrupled in the last ten years, with 186 suits filed last year alone. An increasing number of Israelis have sued, saying had their disabilities been detected during prenatal screening, they would have been aborted – a fate they would have preferred.

“The justices determined that suing for ‘wrongful life’ doesn’t merely pose legal difficulties, but ethical difficulties as well,” the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz reports. “Defining life as ‘damaged,’ even if it is lived with disabilities, and finding that it would be better for a person never to have been born at all, undermines the value of life, they said.”
