Baby who survived abortion suffered developmental delay, intracranial bleeding, hydrocephalus, and disfigurement

The book Lime Five recounts the following malpractice case:

“On July 16, 1985, “Lynette” underwent an abortion at a Planned Parenthood facility in Michigan. Prior to the abortion, no ultrasound was performed to determine the gestational age of the fetus. Dr. X ruptured the amniotic sac, then referred Lynette to a hospital where, five days later, she gave birth to a two pound, three and a half ounce premature infant boy. Because of the botched abortion attempt, the baby suffered developmental delay, intracranial bleeding, hydrocephalus, and disfigurement.”
