A child would never be able to sue a parent for something that happened before they were legally considered a "real person", right?
A pregnant woman has the right to bodily autonomy. However, I don't think that should be used as an excuse to drink while pregnant. While the worst consequences will be for the child, it would also effect the parents negatively too (ie. Maybe finance, it's harder to parent a special needs child, possibly guilt or regret etc).
Suing for a mother for something she did while pregnant also opens up a whole can of worms...suing for choosing to have a vb rather than a cs (or vice versa, if one had a negative consequence), suing because you gave the child a genetic disease (particularly one that could be picked up using pgd) etc.
