Your accounting of the "facts" do not stand up to scrutiny.  Please see 
my comments, inline.

Are you suggesting that the ultrasounds and x-rays you received after 
the accident, but before the UCLA visit, were unable to detect any 
abnormalities, and your own gynecologist was unable to detect any 
problems?  Yet, miraculously, out of the blue, three weeks AFTER  the 
accident the placenta suddenly separated from the uterus? Unprovoked?

Are we then to believe that it was only 2 years later, during a 
subsequent pregnancy, that another doctor was able to determine that the 
matter was caused by a car accident three years earlier?  Of course, 
that doctor was basis any such diagnosis on what you told him - not on 
the records he would have obtained from UCLA.  Did you tell that doctor 
about the records at UCLA?  I suspect not.

Are you suggesting that the stress, which you had imposed upon yourself 
(all stress is self induced), caused you to start bleeding?  Why would 
you suddenly be stressed about me not wanting to have children?  I made 
it very clear to you before you even became pregnant that I didn't want

That is incorrect.  There was no where near the hotel to get a martini 
and I was in the hotel room with you.  Otherwise, how could I have even 
known that you were in the bathroom, crying and bleeding?  I didn't have 
a mobile phone.

As always, your understanding of the law is misguided.  Until the fetus 
is removed from the host, it is not considered a life of it's own and 
there is no law prohibiting the self-termination of a pregnancy.  A 
doctor is not required to notify the police of such.

> That was not even a subject that was brought up in the hospital. 
It's in your chart!  Why don't you obtain and read the existing records 
before you respond?

All I ever do is recount what is in the supporting evidence.  Memory is 
unreliable and skewed.  My statements are based on what is in the 
reports and records.  I would be very curious to review the medical 
reports from your pregnancy with Sage.  Perhaps you would be kind enough 
to tell me who that doctor was and I can have my investigator "reach 
out" to his/her assistant.
