Webinar Wrongful Life, Wrongful Conception & Wrongful Birth Claims Webinar (Pre-Order)

Overview


This webinar visits these 3 aspects of birth claims which are highly controversial due to being formulated on the basis that the child was unwanted. Two are brought from the parents’ perspective, ie: that they were told they had been sterilised or should have been informed that the child was deformed in some way and so been given the opportunity to abort. The last is brought by the disabled child themselves, ie: that they should never have been born.

The Webinar thoroughly reviews the caselaw of which there are many issues still to be resolved, as the Lords have yet to establish a set of guidelines for the lower courts to follow. It reviews the ‘conventional award’ for a mother which has now been established by the House of Lords to reflect the ‘personal injury’ of pregnancy and birth which was not planned. It then considers the social and moral messages being sent by the courts and how other jurisdictions have grappled with the same matters but come to differing conclusions.
