Many states have a rule that says a plaintiff cannot sue for "wrongful pregnancy" or "wrongful birth." So it is difficult in those states to bring a claim wherein you argue that a doctor botched a hysterectomy and your injury is that you became pregnant. The justification for these rules is that the law doesn't wish to "discourage" the creation of life.

The law in most states will not allow a suit for a "wrongful pregnancy" that results from a failed tubal ligation. Consult with a medical malpractice attorney in your area.
