Full text of court decision. Synopsis: In 1990, Amy Blackburn underwent an abortion at Blue Mountain Clinic because she had become pregnant by an HIV-positive male, and feared that her baby would be born HIV-positive. The clinic failed to inform her that the fetus could not be HIV-positive, because Blackburn herself was HIV-negative. Blackburn suffered long-term depression after the abortion. She sued the clinic for negligence after learning that they had failed to inform her that her baby could not have been born with HIV.
