White Couple Sue Sperm Bank After They Were Given Sample From Black Donor

A white lesbian couple in Ohio are suing their sperm bank after they were mistakenly given, and became pregnant with, African-American sperm. The couple claim they will struggle to bring up a multiracial daughter in their predominantly white community.

A white couple from Ohio are suing a sperm bank after one of the women became pregnant using sperm donated by a black man.

The suit claims Cramblett grew up surrounded by people “with stereotypical attitudes about non-whites”, and that the 36-year-old “did not know African-Americans until she attended college at the University of Akron”.

Quoting the lawsuit filed on Monday, the Associated Press reported that Cramblett discovered in a phone call to the clinic that she had become pregnant with sperm from donor No. 330, a black man, instead of No. 380, the white donor chosen by the couple.

The couple said they brought the lawsuit against the sperm bank to prevent it making the same mistake again.
