Woman sues fertility doctor for using his sperm to father her

Woman sues fertility doctor for using his sperm to father her

Consequently, the couple made a decision to be artificially inseminated using sperm from both her husband (85 percent) and a donor (15 percent), who was requested to be a university student with fairly specific physical characteristics.

Her lawsuit is now seeking to prosecute the Idaho Falls obstetrician gynecologist, with whom her mother and her supposed father, Sally Ashby and Howard Fowler, respectively, consulted prior to birth.

A USA woman is suing a fertility doctor after discovering through an online ancestry website the man had secretly fathered her. "While the family understands the public's interest in the story they ask that their privacy be respected as they focus on the hard process of healing from this trauma".

In 1979, Fowler and Ashby were a married couple living in Idaho Falls while Fowler was stationed at the Naval Reactors Facility. The solution seemed simple in his view: Mix Rowlette's father's sperm with a small amount of an anonymous donor's sperm.

The complaint alleges Dr Mortimer instead used his own semen, and when Ms Rowlette was conceived, she was Dr Mortimer's biological offspring.

Mortimer and the Obstetrics and Gynecology Associates of Idaho Falls are the only parties involved who have yet to publicly address the lawsuit recently against them.

When Kelli Rowlette took a DNA from Ancestry.com, she hoped to find out about her genealogical history.

She has always been known as a street chick, but the footage of her trying to fight in the theme park really confirmed that. HL learned she's even scared her exes will try to take her kids away because of it! "You see what people do for attention".

Kelli Rowlette found out a little more than just the origins of her ancestors.

When people send away samples for DNA testing they're often hoping the results can help them trace the lineage of their families over centuries and across continents.

"Dr Mortimer cried when Ms Ashby informed him they were moving", the lawsuit alleges.

"Since discovering Dr Mortimer's actions, Ms Ashby, Mr Fowler and Mrs Rowlette have been suffering immeasurably", the complaint states.
Ms. Ashby contacted Mr. Fowler, her now ex-husband, and relayed the information she obtained from Ancestry.com. Her parents had used Mortimer's services back when they were trying to get pregnant, and apparently he managed to pull a fast one on them.

"We are committed to delivering the most accurate results, however with this, people may learn of unexpected connections", it read. It was the same doctor who delivered baby Kelli and looked after her mother for a few more years following the birth.

"With Ancestry, customers maintain ownership and control over their DNA data", the statement continued.

The family's attorney could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday afternoon by The Washington Post.
