Singapore High Court: Wrongful birth

ACB v Thomson Medical Pte Ltd & Ors [2015] SGHC 9 provides a ‘preliminary point’ consideration of a wrongful birth claim for a child without disability, by the High Court of Singapore.

The claim arose from an IVF procedure where the embryo was by mistake fertilised using the sperm of a male, not being the husband,

Although the mother asserted that she would have terminated the pregnancy had she been aware of the error, the claim for upkeep costs of the child was not allowed.
