Decades after being born, this IUI generation confronts ‘fertility fraud’
Conception beginning with deception.
As the IUI and IVF revolution has increased over the last few decades, so have the concerns surrounding it.
We have heard some of these stories: Things like serial sperm donors who have fathered over a hundred children, or embryo mix-ups (like at an IVF clinic in Los Angeles that led to two couples becoming pregnant with the other’s baby).
Indeed, technology has completely transformed the birthing process in the modern age.
But now we have an entirely different problem. A problem that resolves around sick and perverted doctors themselves.
One that largely began in the early days of widespread fertility treatment itself, and has potentially continued to this day, in which many of the victims involved are only just finding out now (decades later).
It is the emerging legal conundrum of ‘fertility fraud‘, in which a doctor assisting with the insemination process fathers a child without the knowledge of the woman, as requested sperm is swapped for their own instead.
Some real horror stories have emerged in recent years, particularly in overseas regions.
In 2019, there were reports of a Dutch doctor who had been accused of using his own material to father up to 200 children.
In December 2020, the New York Post published a story about a revered family doctor in Detroit, Michigan, who had done the same over four decades, all without the knowledge of many of his patients.
In Indiana, one in which a fertility doctor was eventually found to have at least 94 biological children.
Australia has also been involved in scandals like this.
Last year, sisters Maia and Tahnee Simmons shared their story about learning how Dr. Paul Jones, the man who helped their mother fall pregnant when their father had testicular cancer, might indeed be their father.
One of the sisters commented: “It definitely messes with your head, you question your genetic identity, who you are as a person, what you fought for, in my case, 38 years of who you are and where you came from, is totally changed in an instant.”
In another story, one Hunter Valley woman now estimates she has between 200 and 300 half-siblings across the world due to the fraudulent ‘antics’ of Dr Norman ‘Tony’ Walker.
Fertility treatment really became a booming industry in the 1970s, and for those that are now grown adults involved in those early years of the mainstream process, they are now discovering the hidden truth.
Secrecy surrounding reproductive cell donation has long been embedded in the culture of the fertility industry, often leading doctors to urge parents not to tell their children that they were donor-conceived.
Such secrecy was believed to be best for everyone by creating the illusion of biological connection. It was also influenced by shame concerning infertility and a desire to prevent interference with the parent-child relationship.
But now it is absolutely clear that this approach may not have been the best to take.
And the problem is, we are only just now considering legal safeguards against against the concept of fertility fraud — meaning more younger generations may also find out the same thing.
Let’s take a look now at the fight to catch up with decades of time.
LACK OF PROTECTIONS
As most of this is only being discovered now, it is far too late to prevent these births from already occurring, as they emerged in a time where nobody really considered safeguards for such a deceptive action by doctors.
It has also been reported that victims who file civil suits for medical malpractice and fraud often end up settling out of court and signing lengthy nondisclosure agreements. In some cases, the doctors that have done these deeds are long dead.
And, depending on the state and its definition of consent, doctors often cannot be prosecuted for rape or sexual assault because their patients technically “consented” to the insemination procedure.
To get around this, campaigners have pushed for new laws to be established to specifically address/counter this issue.
In the United States, where many of these stories have originated from, there is currently no specific law against fertility fraud at the federal level. And at the state level, it often remains unlegislated.
The absence of criminality against fertility fraud reflects the broader lack of regulation in reproductive medicine in the US.
In the United States, there are no legal limits on how many times a donor can donate sperm.
Thankfully, some governments on a state level are indeed taking this issue seriously, as well as other countries.
An increasing number of states have enacted fertility fraud legislation that criminalises or provides civil remedies for donor misrepresentation, such as when a fertility doctor uses his own sperm without telling the parents.
A new Colorado bill, in particular, would be the first in the U.S. to require the identity of egg and sperm donors to be released upon request of their donor-conceived offspring when they turn 18.
In the bill’s current version, it would also set a limit on the number of families per individual donor.
In Germany, a donor may not father over 15 children, and the United Kingdom caps it at 10 families.
In Australia, the state of Victoria introduced bans on donor anonymity in 2016.
In 2018, 61-year-old Raffaele Di Paolo was convicted for faking his degree and illegitimately performing fertility treatments on several people in the Melbourne area.
Anonymity bans also hit Sweden in 1985 and the U.K. in 2004.
Sweden was ahead of the curb! Sounds familiar!
In Australia, where payment for sperm donation is prohibited beyond expense reimbursement, the number of sperm donors actually increased after anonymity was removed, meaning that a compromise in privacy does not impact the industry.
So there is some progress being made.
For some, however, it is far too little and far too late.
Fertility fraud involving doctor-donor fathers stands out: crucially, they involve a breach of trust in the doctor-patient relationship.
Some litigants have even likened these incidents to “medical rape” in court filings.
As birthing technologies continue to advance, including the possibility in Australia now for three-parent babies to be born using IVF, what scandals will emerge in a similar fashion in a few decade time?
Yet another consequence of society’s blind trust in medical butchers.
Doctors that are already masters at corrupting the birthing process with trauma techniques.

Really makes me sad that so many have gone down the IVF road, what a money making machine. I understand people are having trouble conceiving but there are others ways, like getting yourself healthy, not being stressed, herbal and homeopathy remedies and stopping using chemicals that may be hindering conceiving. Doctors are really playing God now. It all leads to total control from birth to death. Who would have thought that a TV show would highlight the benefits of IVF to the masses which is showing on Channel 9 atm. I cannot watch it.
Human beings really opened Pandora’s Box when they started going down the IVF road. There’s some things you should just leave to nature and not try and be God ourselves. Never mind that IVF technology often creates many new embryoes. What happens to them? The medical butchers and psychopaths created a monster with this, and then of course, the next step became cloning.
‘Nature’ invariably KNOWS BEST! No ‘Fertility’, whether Broad spectrum Stress orientated, Sperm potency reductions OR Ova issues via Enviro Toxins/Radiations or Life style choices & a plethora of UN-natural (Yes them as well) reasons , NATURE steps in to ‘Cure’ the ‘issue’, & prevention of passing on the ‘Anatomical AnomoLIES’ to the Next Generation! It appears ONLY HU-mans have an ‘issue’ with Natures Engagements & Blocks!
IVF, The ‘ART’, IS, on the List of Global swindles! AND, if a Child> Adult is ‘Healthy/ SAFE & Socially Stable’, what IS their over riding desire to become upset, if they find that their ‘Creator’ (Either ‘Parent’) is Not who they think they are? Do they NOT, have any other ‘LIFE Priorities’ happening? OR, Magically do they become a ‘Latent’ Social Leper? Becoming, The Cycle of Self Manufacturing Stress, just like mRNA ‘Jabs’ Wet Ware – Self replicating = Oxymoronic per this issue of NON replication = The Court jester was Amused, Whilst strumming His/Her/They – ‘Singular’, 5G WiFi Modem – No apologies Forthcoming from H/H/They – ‘S’s white Hetrosexual Multi Coloured Tights-Cap & Bells, all the while, Waltzing the Labor-Oratory two-step!
Last; AMAZING! A Poxy Bottle of beer (& other alcohol), carries a ‘Warning’ per Alcohol.- Drink wise.Org; Quote; ‘Alcohol can cause Lifelong harm to your Baby’. BUT, Those CONVID ‘Jabs’ are PERFECTLY Fine Mate/Missus! (Even AGAINST pHARMa’s OWN Safety Warning recommendation Info.- Along with the Increased Govt/Illness Depts Autism rates & Allergic records for Kids, Pro Rata to All ‘Required Jabs’! [Where’s the PROOF of ‘Requirement for PROPER HEALTH’/ ANY Benefit then??].)
OMG, Ethan, what next? I suppose if Brave New World comes to its [sterile] fruition, these God-playing doctors will have to stop their little game. I suppose they consider they are “superfit” in a Darwinian sense because they have produced many more offspring than other males.
And with the poison jabaroo wreaking havoc with human fertility, there will be even more opportunity for these “generous donors” to spread themselves around.
