Woman sues fertility clinic
alleging miscarriage triggered by
spouse´s affair with nurse

Toronto Sun (Canada), by Sam Pazzano

Original Article

Posted By:Fledrmaus, 8/11/2013 10:08:42 AM

Po Leung was ecstatic when she learned she had finally become pregnant through in vitro fertilization on March 24, 2010. “It was one of the best days of my life. I was thrilled,” said the 44-year-old investment adviser recently. After three years of sacrifice and $60,000, her elusive goal had been reached. The next day “was the worst day of my life,” recalled Leung. Her common-law spouse Stuart Westcott abruptly ended their four-year relationship.

Comments:
I can pity her, especially as she lost her baby, but also acknowledge that she´s largely messed up her own life. Waiting too long to have a child, then throwing away her last chance on a bum whom she didn´t even marry. I´d like to see the cheating louse and the skanky nurse punished too, but I don´t think the courts can fix everything in life, especially the things we do to ourselves.

I know a lot of factors may account for infertility. I also know a lot of couples show great commitment in the money and time given to treatment. But I am starting to think that God in His Wisdom might be behind not being able to conceive naturally in some cases, because maybe He knows that these couples had no business being together and will inevitably split up.

It never crossed this presumably intelligent woman´s mind that she should marry the man she decided she wanted to have a baby with?

And here´s how she found him in the first place:

Leung lost three relatives to deaths over an 18-month span in 2004 and 2005. Through those tragedies, she met funeral director Stuart Westcott.

“He can put people at ease,” Leung said. “He garners trust.”


No one seems to have told her about funeral directors either.

I´m having trouble finding my violin.

Skanky and Our Gang.

Some people do self-address the envelope that delivers their misery.

I´s good reminder,too, that it´s not the "gays" who systematically split off sex from procreation, procreation from marriage, marriage from commitment to family "til death do us part."

We did it. We (heterosexuals) smashed the holisic, intricate, and honorable web of committed intimate relations which are the foundation of human life.

What a mess we´ve made.

The guy didn´t want to marry her. Shouldn´t that have been her first clue about his commitment? She must have thought she could rope him in with the new baby. All it did was make him run the other way.

Seems to me Po got out of a bad situation in the best of all possible ways. She´s rid of an unfaithful and doesn´t have to have his baby to remind her of him.

She should be paying the clinic rather than suing, for rescuing her from her own lousy judgment.

Why is a clinic liable for what a dirtbag BF does?He was pre-disposed not to want to marry whether the nurse came along or not.

Intellectually she´s a slice of bread short of a sandwich if she thought a common law relationship was an adequate foundation for parenthood.

I like that the newspaper referred to the pair as "spouses" in a "common law" marriage. We should use those terms more often when comfronted with couples who are shacked-up. It might scare more of the men out of those affairs!

There was some news not long ago about a change in Quebec´s common law marriage law ~ how they were making it MANDATORY for even a one time quicky!

Had to do with provincial welfare and revenue needs.

More pockets to tap.

The first sales clerk wasn’t sure what I was asking about. “Nature scene?” she asked. “No, nativity scene.” “Ahhh, nativity scene,” she said, a quick look of comprehension coming to her face. Then she didn’t move or say anything and I realized she still didn’t have a clue. “You know, baby Jesus. A manger. Some animals gathered around.” “Ah, yes. I think we have some over here.”

Oh great. Last March the Quebec government adopted expensive new rules for seniors’ residences that are driving them out of business and leaving their elderly customers out of luck. And the clever politicians and bureaucrats never saw it coming. It recalls Chesterton’s 1922 lament, “The burden upon us is that we are not ruled by men of ordinary ignorance, but of extraordinary ignorance.”

Dozens of travellers arriving home at Ottawa International Airport have filed complaints about rude treatment and harassment by Canada Border Services Agency officers, including one who allegedly asked a young woman if she was menstruating. Many of the complaints share a consistent theme: the aggressive tone of border officers who greet them when they return home.

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

Rev. Al Shaprton, the controversial civil rights leader-turned-broadcaster, was a confidential FBi informant for years and helped the feds put members of the Genovese and Gambino organized crime families behind bars, it was revealed Monday in a sensational exposé. President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment. Sharpton´s special relationship with the Justice Department may also explain why his NAN has been allowed to skirt responsibility for $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties it has owed the IRS since 2006

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws. On Monday, Taylor emailed this response to Camp´s announcement: "One word: Ridiculous." Camp´s committee has been investigating

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not
