Akron -- A malpractice lawsuit by a Cuyahoga Falls woman alleges that an abortion clinic failed to successfully perform the abortion she sought, eventually leading to her child's birth, according to the Cuyahoga Falls-News Press.
The lawsuit filed this month in Akron says Ariel Knights of Cuyahoga Falls realized she was still pregnant days after the procedure last March at Akron Women's Medical Group. The suit says she refused to try again with that clinic and decided to go through with the pregnancy after being referred to a second clinic that declined to get involved.
Knights tells Ohio.com she's not sure what went wrong. She says she wanted the abortion because of a medical condition that made the pregnancy threatening to her health.
Ohio.com reports the clinic's director declined to comment.
