A UK woman who says she would have aborted her son if she had known during pregnancy that he had Down syndrome could receive nearly $245,000 from the country’s National Health Service after a court ruled in her favor, according to a new report.

Edyta Mordel, 33, who is Polish-born and lives in Reading, Berkshire, sued the national health care system over the “wrongful birth” of her son Aleksander, who is now 4, the Mirror reported Tuesday.

Doctors had said Mordel — whose 2014 pregnancy was unplanned — was booked to have a Down syndrome screening, which is offered between 10 and 14 weeks of pregnancy but declined the test, according to the report.

But the judge found that the sonographer in charge of the screening had not obtained adequate “informed consent” from Mordel to forgo it, according to the report.

The worker “knew, or ought to have known, Ms. Mordel had indicated provisionally she wanted Down screening,” the judge said, adding that the then-pregnant woman hadn’t processed the question when asked by the sonographer if she actually wanted the exam, only replying, “No” as a reflex response.

The sonographer’s initial question was “abrupt” and she did not follow up further, the judge said.

Still, “Nothing I have said should be interpreted as suggesting that the birth of a child with Down syndrome must be seen as unwelcome,” the judge added.

Mordel told the court that she had worked with someone with Down syndrome and did not want her child to struggle in the same way, the outlet reported.

“I saw how difficult his life is, and I would not have continued my pregnancy,” she said. “I would not have wanted a disabled child, and I would not have wanted my child to suffer the way disabled people suffer. I wouldn’t want to have brought my child into the world like that.”
