DNA Test Proves the Baby’s Father was not the Agreed Upon Sperm Donor

A Florida couple is seeking damages from a Vermont gynecologist after genetic tests on their 41-year-old daughter reportedly pointed to the doctor being her father, rather than the agreed upon sperm donor.

“This could not have been done accidentally,” said the couple’s lawyer. “It’s fraud, and it’s a question of inserting genetic material into a woman, not of an anonymous donor but rather the physician who is engaging in the conduct itself.”

The couple discovered the reported connection to the gynecologist when their 41-year-old daughter wanted to find her genetic background and learn more about her health and history through a DNA test promoted by several websites.

Moral of the story: Do not be surprised if the results of a DNA test turn out to be radically different from what you expected.

Shades of former Dr. Cecil Jacobson

Why sue the Hospital? That is not a case of a Dr. being incompetent, just that he lied about where he got the male DNA from.

Sue the Dr personally then.

The possibility of boy meeting girl, half-brother and sister, falling in love and getting married is chilling!

Life imitating art- shades of an early Law and Order segment. I am curious as to the “why he did it ” question. Egp? Desperation re supply of designated inventory? Dropped the vial and needed a fast substitute? No one knew 41 years ago or ev en 4 years ago that DNA would become such a spyglass into the past.

So, instead of the family being happy and grateful to even have a healthy, thriving daughter, something they couldn’t otherwise have, they are upset because they didn’t get the “right” kind of daughter? That is sure a great way to tell the daughter she is inferior in their eyes. That’s awful loving.

I think you have it all wrong! They, I’m sure are proud of their daughter, IF you read it right it was the daughter who just wanted to know what DNA she has as others mentioned for medical history purposes and who cares what else. It’s their business. Too much information is being made public when it should be kept within persons involved.
