Ms. Fu took the prescription to the hospital pharmacy to get medicine. Because of her trust, she took the medicine to drink without checking the name. However, a few days later, the hospital called to inform her that the wrong medicine was given to her.
According to Ms. Fu, the doctor’s prescription for birth control was correct, but the pharmacist mistakenly gave her cancer medicine and it clearly stated: “Prohibited for pregnant women”.
The hospital called to apologize and asked Ms. Fu to come check it out. After considering, the doctor advised her to terminate the pregnancy because the other cancer drug could affect the baby, causing birth defects. However, Ms. Fu has not yet agreed and is still considering it.

“I wanted to have children, so I had to take birth control pills. But the pharmacist gave me the wrong medicine and now tells me to abort the child. Money is not the problem, I don’t need the money. Now I say I don’t want to have an abortion. What if the fetus gives birth to a child, are they responsible?“, said Ms. Fu, exasperated.
Currently, the two sides have not reached an agreement. The person in charge of the hospital said the medical malpractice had happened anyway and could not be restored. The hospital just wants to find the best solution. Ms. Fu’s side said she was still thinking.
