A group of parents who claim their children suffered severe birth defects because of Zoloft has filed a lawsuit against the drug's manufacturer.

Mary and David Saville, Terry and Todd Cochran, Anita Kinslow, Wendell Houchens, Erica Woodley and Antwynette Golliday joined a lawsuit filed Dec. 2 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Pfizer Inc. Pfizer is the manufacturer of Zoloft, the antidepressant medication at the center of the suit.

According to the nine-count complaint, the female plaintiffs were all prescribed Zoloft during their pregnancies, despite the alleged risks posed to their unborn children. The mothers claim their babies were all born with major medical defects, including heart damage.
