Kids are a blooming nuisance.
A mother who gave birth to a twin girl after an abortion failed is suing the hospital for £250,000 to help bring up her daughter.
Stacy Dow discovered she was expecting twins when she was 16 and decided, because of her age and inability to support a child, to have an abortion.
The procedure was carried out when she was around seven weeks pregnant and she was given a contraceptive injection afterwards...
"When I got to 33 weeks I went to the GP again and he told me I was pregnant. I was absolutely stunned. I didn't know what to say or do. It was obviously too far on to do anything.
''My mother told my boyfriend's parents for me. They were shocked too.
"I had no option but to go through with the birth.
"Although I love her to bits, I have a child now that I wasn't planning to have and I believe the hospital should take some responsibility.
''None of us would be without Jayde now but looking after her has been a financial struggle.
"It has totally changed my life and my parents' lives."
The court papers say that as a result of the failed termination Miss Dow suffered "stress and anxiety upon the discovery of her continuing pregnancy".
The papers add: "She has the financial burden of care and upbringing of Jayde. She suffers an impediment in her ability to obtain employment in consequence of her care for the child."
With hundreds of women spending thousands of pounds on IVF and flying round the world to Chinese orphanages and so on to get a baby didn't anyone suggest to this ungrateful cow she might like to give up the little tot for adoption so it had a chance to escape the type of life she leads?
UPDATED - thanks to a reader for pointing out that I had made an erroneous assumption about the father of the child - I have deleted that portion of the post.
