I was infuriated when i heard that my sister-in-law, who was pregnant, was given the wrong drug by the drug store guy. It was a drug for cancer which he gave to my sister-in-law. She was 6 months pregnant and well, she took the drug and that resulted in an abortion. I sunk to the ground and my sister-in-law and my brother were shattered. It was their first baby. We decided to press charges,personally, I felt like thrashing the fellow cause he didn't read the prescription carefully. !@$%.
Later when i told some of my close friends, they said they have heard similar stories and so i thought of starting this thread to share our experiences.
