BOSTON (AP) -- A Boston woman is suing Planned Parenthood and two doctors over a failed abortion. 45-year-old Jennifer Raper wants them to pay the cost of raising her child. The medical malpractice suit contends that Raper found out she was pregnant in March 2004 and, for financial reasons, decided to get an abortion. She says a Planned Parenthood doctor who performed the procedure didn't do it properly, with the result that she was still pregnant. The suit says a doctor at Boston Medical Center failed to detect the pregnancy that July, although by then she was 20 weeks along. It wasn't until September 2004 that she found out she was still pregnant when she went to an emergency room for treatment of pelvic pain. In December 2004, she gave birth to a girl.
