Doctor sued for secretly impregnating patient with his own sperm

DNA test reveals a woman's biological father was her parents' fertility doctor

The procedure to inseminate Rowlette's mother was meant to mix 85% of her father's sperm with 15% from a college student of similar appearance.

Rowlette has now filed a lawsuit against the doctor, claiming the fertility specialist knowingly swapped Fowler's semen sample for his own before performing IUI on Ashby over a period of three months. Mortimer reportedly told the couple that the issue was caused by the husband's low sperm count and the wife's tipped uterus; so, he suggested that the wife be inseminated with a mix of the husband's sperm and that of an anonymous donor to increase the changes of conception.

The parents agreed on the condition the donor was a college student with physical characteristics similar to Fowler - namely brown hair, blue eyes and over 6-foot tall, according to the lawsuit.

Unbeknownst to the couple, Mortimer actually used his own sperm.

The plaintiffs also name the Obstetrics and Gynecology Associates of Idaho Falls in the lawsuit, whose members, they claim, knew about Dr Mortimer's behavior.

When reached for comment, the Obstetrics and Gynecology Associates of Idaho Falls gave the following statement: "None of the healthcare providers of were part of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Associate of Idaho Falls practice from 1979 to 1980, and have diligently strived to provide care to their patients that is in compliance of the standards of healthcare practice".

Rowlette was born May 20, 1981. "[He] knew Kelli Rowlette was his biological daughter but did not disclose this to Ms. Ashby or Mr. Fowler".

Ancestry.com tells Rowlette her biological father is a man named Gerald Mortimer.

United States judge appears dismissive of Manafort lawsuit challenging Mueller appointment
A federal judge expressed doubts Wednesday about a lawsuit brought by Paul Manafort challenging special counsel Robert S. He didn't specify what other types of charges he thought the special counsel might be investigating against Manafort.

Mortimer examined Ashby and Fowler to determine their reproductive problems. Ms. Ashby contacted Mr. Fowler, her now ex-husband, and relayed the information she obtained from Ancestry.com.

A woman is suing a reproductive specialist in the USA after a DNA test revealed he was her biological father.

In August, Rowlette was helping to sort through her parents' old papers when she ran across her birth certificate.

"[Ancestry] helps people make new and powerful discoveries about their family history and identity..." He had been her doctor for several years following the birth. "With Ancestry, customers maintain ownership and control over their DNA data". It must be a mistake, she tells her mom - who takes a look at the name on her own time and is completely "devastated", the lawsuit says.
