The law stipulates that physicians MUST disclose all of the info. It's point number five. 5. Specifies these provisions do not apply to civil action for damages for an intentional or grossly negligent act or omission, including one that violates criminal law. The law is about tort reform, specifically b/c there have been parents suing doctors over wrongful life or wrongful birth, which may be due to a doctor's error, not an intentional omission.
