OHIO: Lesbian Sues Over Wrong Sperm
An white Ohio lesbian is suing a local sperm bank, alleging that they mistakenly sent her sperm from an African-American donor. According to the suit, while she and her partner adore their mixed-race daughter, they are having difficulty raising her in an all-white community.
Jennifer Cramblett, of Uniontown, Ohio, alleges in the lawsuit filed Monday in Cook County Circuit Court that Midwest Sperm Bank sent her the vials of an African-American donor's sperm in September 2011 instead of those of a white donor that she and her white partner had ordered. After searching through pages of comprehensive histories for their top three donors, the lawsuit claims, Cramblett and her domestic partner, Amanda Zinkon, chose donor No. 380, who was also white. Their doctor in Ohio received vials from donor No. 330, who is African-American, the lawsuit said. Cramblett, 36, learned of the mistake in April 2012, when she was pregnant and ordering more vials so that the couple could have another child with sperm from the same donor, according to the lawsuit. The sperm bank delivered vials from the correct donor in August 2011, but Cramblett later requested more vials, according to the suit. Cramblett is suing Midwest Sperm Bank for wrongful birth and breach of warranty, citing the emotional and economic losses she has suffered.The suit further states that the plaintiff fears the child will not be accepted by her "all white and unconsciously insensitive family." Oh brother. The wingnuts are going to go crazy over this.
