A CBC News story says:

A former patient of a disgraced eastern Ontario gynecologist is suing him for $1 million over an alleged botched abortion.

Tania Brown of Carleton Place, Ont., has filed a statement of claim in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in nearby Perth. She alleges Dr. Michel Prevost committed “gross negligence and medical malpractice” with respect to her failed abortion.

According to the CBC, Ms. Brown “only realized the abortion failed four months later, and later carried the baby to term. She gave birth to a five-pound boy with fetal abnormalities, including a smaller brain and a hole in his heart.”

As reported in the Millstone, Prevost resigned from practicing medicine earlier this year after the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario found he was “incompetent in his practice of obstetrics and gynecology.”

According to the Almonte General Hospital, where Prevost once practiced, he hasn’t been there in “quite some time.”
