Doctor using own sperm

Canada – Couple angry wrong donor sperm used at Ottawa clinic


Former Ottawa fertility doctor Norman Barwin faces a potential class-action lawsuit over allegations he inseminated women with his own sperm.

A lesbian Toronto couple who conceived a child with the help of an Ottawa fertility specialist is angry and saddened after DNA testing proved their daughter was not conceived from the anonymous donor they chose.

Dr. Norman Barwin is alleged in a class action to have used his own sperm or the wrong sperm without the knowledge or consent of the people who came to him for insemination treatments.
