Parents sue hospital for 'psychological trauma' of failed abortion even though the child is now 14



Giuseppe and Aurora Bellandi, who live in the Italian beach town of Rimini with Elisa, are demanding £700,000 (€1m) in compensation for not just the psychological trauma of having a second child, but also the material deprivation it caused to their lifestyle.

Elisa, who is mature beyond her years, incredibly supports their decision to sue and insists she has always felt 'loved'.

The failed abortion took place in 2000 after the couple, who already had a grown-up son, unexpectedly discovered that they were expecting a baby.


The Bellandis were told it was medically necessary to save the life of Aurora, already 43. They also felt that they could simply not afford another child.

With grim acceptance, they agreed to the termination. But, by the time they discovered it had failed, it was too late to repeat the procedure under Italian law, which forbids abortion after 21 weeks. The doctors brought her into the world. They should provide for her study and indispensable needs until she is 18. It's her right Father Giuseppe


The pregnancy and birth were problematic and the couple successfully sued the doctors responsible for 'physical harm to the mother' and received £85,000 (€120,000) in damages in 2008. Seven years later, the couple, who claim they are still struggling financially as a result of Elisa's birth, are taking a hospital in Alessandria, in the mountainous northern region of Piedmont, to Italy's highest court.
