Lesbians sue after sperm bank mix-up gives them a black baby instead of a white one
White lesbians in the Canton area are suing a sperm bank, because it sent them sperm from the wrong donor, a man who was...black. The Chicago Tribune reports:
Jennifer Cramblett, of Uniontown, Ohio, alleges in the lawsuit filed Monday in Cook County Circuit Court that Midwest Sperm Bank sent her the vials of an African-American donor's sperm in September 2011 instead of those of a white donor that she and her white partner had ordered.
I've heard of sending your order back, but really....
After searching through pages of comprehensive histories for their top three donors, the lawsuit claims, Cramblett and her domestic partner, Amanda Zinkon, chose donor No. 380, who was also white. Their doctor in Ohio received vials from donor No. 330, who is African-American, the lawsuit said.
Cramblett, 36, learned of the mistake in April 2012, when she was pregnant and ordering more vials so that the couple could have another child with sperm from the same donor, according to the lawsuit.
Cramblett sued the Midwest Sperm Bank, based in Downers Grove, Illinois, for wrongful birth and breach of warranty – implying she considers black babies defective and would rather her daughter, Payton, had never been born– “citing the emotional and economic losses she has suffered,” the Tribune reports.
Ya see, they're not racist; they just don't want a black baby. “Because of this background and upbringing, Jennifer acknowledges her limited cultural competency relative to African-Americans and steep learning curve, particularly in small, homogenous Uniontown, which she regards as too racially intolerant,” her lawsuit says.
A lesbian couple has sued because the baby they asked for came out the wrong color. “When children are manufactured, you're bound to have a production breakdown,” said Dan Kennedy, CEO of Human Life of Washington.
But yeah, homosexual and transgender rights are totally the New Civil Rights Movement, or in the words of Attorney General Eric Holder, “the civil-rights issue of our day.” (I'm sure the kyriarchy system has some answer for how these conflicting victimologies stack up.)
Martin Luther King Jr. died for this, huh?
This provides an interesting counterpoint to pro-abortion arguments. Alabama State Rep. Alvin Holmes, D-Montgomery, said this winter, "Ninety-nine percent of the whites who are sitting in here now, if their daughter got pregnant by a black man, they are going to make their daughter have an abortion. They ain't gonna let her have the baby.”
When he asked a white pro-life woman what she would do if her daughter brought home a child fathered by a black man, she replied, “Let it run around in my living room and enjoy it as my grandchild.”
Pro-lifers would keep – no, would cherish – an “unintended” child of whatever background. This lesbian couple is unhappy about the child they ordered and, realistically, had no other way to create. Despite this, and the fact that abortion disproportionately affects minorities, pro-lifers are always branded as “racist.”
