Days after Keeden was born in August 2000 he suffered a massive stroke causing brain damage and leaving him unable to walk, talk or go to the toilet unaided.

I know these are new parents and all, but surely they are aware that the average newborn can do none of those things?

You ever think that nature gives some people clues about whether they shouldn't procreate?

MorrisBird: It sounds like alloimmune thrombocytopenia. This is a treatable condition, with a proper medical history of the parents. Remember how we used to have "blue babies" because Mom was A- and Dad A+? Kind of like that. Nowadays A- mothers just get a shot of Rhogam, and no more blue babies. With alloimmune thrombocytopenia, if mom is treated with intravenous gamma globulin during her pregnancy, no intracerebral bleeds in baby's brain. Healthy baby. I would say that the journalist leapt to a damned unfortunate conclusion without understanding the medicine. It's not a "wrongful birth." It's a failure to diagnose and treat alloimmune thrombocytopenia.

Well you are a festizio! See, I can make up words too.
