Taken directly from the article; A call for Routine DNA Tests as IVF Paternity Fraud goes Rampant
“IVF is one of the many modern techniques used to help couple with fertility issue to have a baby. The process involves the surgical removal of a woman’s egg from the ovaries then getting the egg fertilized in the laboratory, in vitro (glass), hence the name test tube babies. The fertilized egg becomes an embryo, which is then implanted in the woman’s womb, or in a surrogate mother’s womb, to grow and develop.
Given the process doesn’t involve direct sexual contact between the mother and the sperm donor, fraud has found way in most corners of the procedure, with many fathers losing their children or raising other men’s children unknowingly. There are more complex cases.
One father relates that losing your child to such a fraud makes you feel like a being a father of an abducted child; you face bereavement for child who is alive somewhere.
A victim at the focal point of Britain’s first known paternity fraud case involving IVF is advocating for the introduction of routine DNA test in divorce. The man was tricked into raising a child for six years thinking it was his.
The man is calling for the law to be overhauled following a court ruling that his ex-wife could not be forced to refund child maintenance payments amounting to tens of thousands of pounds even though it is well known to have been acquired by fraud. His sentiment is to have the MPs to formulate a new legislation where paternity deceit is considered as a crime rather than a civil offence in cases involving premeditation and exchange of huge sums of money or grave emotional damage to the parents or children.”
Holy fuck, now its with paternity fraud and ivf the more things change…
