Woman Who Was Accidentally Impregnated With Black Man's Sperm Finally Learns Her Fate (PHOTOS)

An Illinois woman who says she gave birth to a mixed-race baby because she was accidentally given the sperm of an African-American man has lost her lawsuit, according to The Guardian.

The Chicago Tribune reported Thursday that DuPage County Judge Ronald Sutter dismissed the suit, which accused the Midwest Sperm Bank of “wrongful birth” and “breach of warranty.” However, Sutter ruled that Jennifer Cramblett may file another action against the facility, alleging negligence.

When the woman received artificial insemination in December 2011, she did not get sperm from the donor she and her partner had chosen. Sperm bank officials apologized and offered to refund a portion of the couple’s payment. Cramblett claimed her “limited cultural competency” has made it difficult for her to rear a mixed-race child in her predominantly white community because of racial prejudice. The judge rejected the argument.

The sperm bank’s lawyer, Bob Summers, pointed out that the term “wrongful death” legally refers to cases in which medical negligence causes the birth of unhealthy children. Lynsey Stewart, another attorney representing the business, successfully argued that the “breach of warranty” claim was improper because the Illinois Blood and Organ Transaction Liability Act does not apply to sperm donations.
