Hospital tells mom to abort ‘brain dead’ baby, Sarah Hagan now sues after healthy child is born

A mother in England is filing a lawsuit against a hospital where doctors told her she should have an abortion of her supposedly “brain dead” unborn baby. Sarah Hagan is now suing City Hospitals Sunderland after giving birth to a healthy child.

Hagan says that, after a 24-week ultrasound scan of her unborn baby, doctors told her that her son Aaron was “brain dead,” had just one eye and no chance of survival.

The mother of two says physicians advised her to take an abortion drug, even though the mifepristone abortion pill is only authorized to be used to destroy the life of an unborn baby much earlier in pregnancy.

As described by the Daily Mail: “Hagan went through the agony of taking tablets to abort her unborn son, only to be told doctors were going to try and deliver her baby.”

Hagan, age 38, instead delivered the baby boy.

“It breaks my heart every day when I look at my son and think how I almost got rid of him.”

Aaron was born with a ton of health problems including chronic lung issues and a cyst on the brain.

“If I had been allowed to go longer into the pregnancy, I am sure he wouldn’t have had any of these problems.”

Hagan now moves ahead with legal action, but more importantly, wants other women to know her story.

“I just want other mothers to know my story so that nothing like this happens again.”
