A woman is taking her mother’s doctor to court for allowing her to be born.
Evie Toombes, 20, from Skegness, Lincolnshire, England, claims she should have never been born and she is suing her mother’s GP for millions in damages.
The para-showjumping star was born with spina bifida – a condition where a baby’s spine and spinal cord fail to develop in the womb, causing a gap in the spine – and spends some of her days connected to tubes 24-hours-a-day.
Despite her condition, she has built a career in showjumping, competing against both disabled and able-bodied riders.
Evie has also appeared on ITV’s show ‘Hidden Disabilities: What’s The Truth?’ and also met Prince Harry and Megan Markle when she won the Inspiration Young Person Award at a Well-child charity event in 2018.
