In Medical Paternalism, Stillbirth, & Blindsided Mothers, Lens argues that physicians who fail to disclose the risk of stillbirth to pregnant patients should be liable under the doctrine of informed consent. In this Response, I suggest that courts might be hesitant to expand informed consent in the way Lens proposes. Instead, I offer an alternative avenue for imposing liability, via traditional theories of medical malpractice.
