    Shows how stupid UK doctors are, not the best health system in the world. And wow, just look how 'bogan' those two look.

    Yikes. I'm glad she didn't take the pills. If she did schedule for a D&C, they'd have to redo ultrasound to confirm the baby's status before the procedure.

    If medical error is a major indication of whether health system is good or not, then UK would still be relatively good compared with other countries (source):

    Nation, Errors
    USA 34%
    Canada 30%
    Australia 27%
    New Zealand 25%
    Germany 23%
    UK 22%​

    That's horrible! I'm so glad she didn't choose to take the pills or anything.

    Stupid doctor. At least the couple will have the baby, though.

    They need to sue those people. To receive such horrible news only to find out it's still alive!! I'd say 2 - 5 million dollars are in the works.

    I really feel that's the worst thing to resort to.

    If I were in this situation I'm sure I would be a upset at first, but then I'd get over it and focus on the fact the I WAS STILL PREGNANT! I would be happy and estatic, not focusing on the negative that a month ago I thought I wasn't.

    Alex - health care professionals are human. Humans are not perfect.

    vilky - that's a very american attitude - sue sue sue. the reality is, medical malpractice is actually quite hard to prove. the couple has been through enough already, their baby is fine, why go through the trauma of a lawsuit?
