I think that "spins" are basically acceptable and/or inevitable ("it might
still end up being a bargain/a nice child, after all"), but paying somebody
for being told lies, hey, the client must write this down if it is really
what he wants from me.

If anything because the prospective purchasers/parents, in spite of their
possible temporary wish not to hear bad news, could later sue the
lawyer/doctor who deliberately kept silent about, or misrepresented,
available data. And rightly so, I would add.
