A guy who failed a paternity test after his child was conceived through a fertility clinic using his sperm is not suing. Reason? Seems the child is not genetically his but his brothers. No loons, there was no hanky panky going on. The so called “brother” was an unborn twin. Yep, the guy absorbed the dead twins genes in the womb. In other words his dead twin is actually the father. Creepy as. The phenomenon is known as human chimera. Still confused? So the man’s sperm was found to be a 10 percent match to the infant, while the genes in his saliva were not a match.

A 21 year old woman got the shock of her life when she discovered that the receptionist at a fertility clinic, where her parents underwent artificial insemination, was her real father. Seems the convicted kidnapper who had been working at the clinic had deliberately switched sperm with her intended “father”. It is feared that the man may have switched samples with several other male patients and could have fathered numerous children without couples knowing. Unfortunately, the man in question is no longer alive but his mother agreed to a DNA swab which confirmed the girl and parent’s worst fear. The clinic, which was associated with the University of Utah,is no longer operating and there are no remaining records but the Uni is offering genetic testing for anyone who used the clinic from 1988 through 1994.
