A six month pregnant 36 year old woman lost her baby in 1991 during a patient mix-up. Doctors accidentally aborted her baby when they tried to remove an intrauterine contraceptive device which was meant to be performed on another woman. The woman sued the doctors for manslaughter but the doctors ruled that a fetus could not be deemed to be a person.
