Fertility centre impregnate woman with wrong embryo

29 June 2010

It has been revealed that a woman in Connecticut, America, has been impregnated with an embryo of another woman with the same last name. The lady then decided to take the morning-after pill to abort the child. The mistake happened in April 2009 at the Center for Advanced Reproductive Services, University of Connecticut Health Center. The centre has been fined US$3,000. The woman who parented the embryos had not been in treatment since 2006, but had continued to store them at the centre and was also informed of the error.
