In Illinois, the type of case that you are referring to is known as Wrongul Birth. If you give birth to a normal child, there are no damages recognized by law. If you give birth to a disabled child, damages are available for the difference in cost between raising a healthy "normal" child and the costs for raising a disabled child. Additionally, parents may recover for emotional distress.
