A white Ohio woman is suing a sperm bank, claiming that she was accidentally inseminated with vials from a black donor.
In the lawsuit, Jennifer Cramblett claims the lab mix-up has caused her and her partner added stress and anxiety as they struggle to raise their 2-year-old biracial daughter, Payton, in their “racially intolerant” community of Uniontown, Ohio, the Chicago Tribune reported.
The lawsuit, filed Monday in Cook County Circuit Court, alleges that Midwest Sperm Bank gave her the vials of an African-American donor’s sperm in September 2011, even though she and her partner had picked out sperm from a white donor.
The lawsuit says they received vials from African-American donor No. 330, instead of sperm from white donor No. 380. The mix-up occurred because the hospital keeps handwritten records, which were likely misread, the lawsuit alleges.
