An Ohio couple, hoping for one more child from IVF, has been told that the fertility clinic implanted the wrong embryos. The woman has now become an unintended surrogate. Because of their strong support for life, they will carry the baby to term and then relinquish him to his genetic parents.
"We knew if our embryo had been thawed and negligently put into another woman, we would expect that the child would be returned to us."
ASRM (American Society for Reproductive Medicine) supposedly has "a series of strong protocol recommendations" for clinics. But that's all they are, recommendations. The fertility industry oversees itself.
