AKRON, Ohio - An Akron clinic is denying a woman's allegations that doctors failed to successfully perform the abortion she sought, eventually leading to her child's birth.
Ariel Knights of Cuyahoga Falls is suing the Akron Women's Medical Group and two doctors. The 22-year-old woman's malpractice lawsuit filed last month alleges they were negligent in March 2012.
In a court filing, the clinic and doctors deny any negligence and challenge the lawsuit for various reasons, including that they say at least some of the claims are barred by the statute of limitations. They want the case dismissed.
Knights says she sought an abortion because of a medical condition and a doctor's warning that the pregnancy could threaten her health.
She's seeking at least $25,000 in compensatory damages.
