Rose Acuna v. Sheldon C. Turkish, M.D.

9-12-07 (A-15-06)

A physician has a common law duty to provide a woman with
material information concerning the medical risks of terminating
her pregnancy; however, there is no common law duty requiring a
physician to inform a pregnant patient that an embryo is an
existing, living human being and that an abortion results in the
killing of a family member.
