    Couple Settles Lawsuit Over Embryo Mix-Up

    By SAMUEL MAULL

    NEW YORK -- A couple whose embryo was mistakenly implanted into an unwitting surrogate mother settled a lawsuit Monday against the fertility clinic doctor who made the mistake.

    Robert and Deborah Perry-Rogers accepted the settlement just as jury selection was to begin in their suit. "It's a relief to have this behind us," the husband said. "Now we can move on."

    The couple's lawyer said a confidentiality clause in the agreement barred him from revealing the settlement amount.

    Deborah Perry-Rogers, then 33, and Donna Fasano, then 37, went to the New York clinic in 1998 to have fertilized eggs implanted into their uteruses. Perry-Rogers and her husband are black; Fasano is white.

    Dr. Michael Obasaju admitted that he put some of Perry-Rogers' fertilized eggs into a catheter that was used to implant Fasano's embryos, according to court papers.

    Fasano later gave birth to two boys, one white and one black. Perry-Rogers was implanted only with her own fertilized eggs; none of those produced a fetus.

    The Rogerses sought custody of their baby after learning that Fasano had given birth, and were given the child five months later. The Fasanos' attempts to secure visitation rights were rejected by a court.

    I believe there was a story like that a few years ago. A white couple were having trouble conceiving, so they went to the doc. The doc used the same tube thing on another couple. I think this case was twins too, one was half black.

    People, if you can't have kids the natural way, don't you think Mother Nature is trying to tell you something?

    AbDNA - 100% Eur. 23andme: 99.99% Eur., .01% Af.
    23andme: 99.73% European, .27% African

    Yes, it's telling them to have separate clinics

    Seriously, many people suffer from infertility due to health problems caused by living in a modern society. I think it's only fair if modern technology was used to fix that.

    Fasano sounds Italian. I can only imagine how much problems they had explaining to their conservative family about the 'other' kid
