Is this right??

After watching the news relating to the USA mother that HAS to give up the baby she is having due to the IVF clinic that made an error an implanted the wrong embryo in the wrong mother. What a dilemna? WHAT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO???? It is a sad & painful time for all the "parents" involved in this debacle.

Kiwi chick says: If I remember correctly there were 2 couples who had frozen embryos and one was implanted into the wrong couple. It seems to all hinge on the couples involved as to the outcome. I did read about one where an abortion was ordered. It must be a dilemma if the mother is getting on in years and knows she has to go through with a high risk pregnancy with no baby at the end or to abort a viable foetus in order to go carry her own embryo Reply

If she is happy to still have the child, should she not be left in peace?
The mistake was made by the clinic not the couple Reply

Phoenixarizona says: She should sue the idiot who told her that!!!!
Number one the law in the U.S and here states that if a woman gives birth to a child that woman is that childs mother.
This is the IVF 's screwup and this woman should not be expected to do anything. If this woman wants to give her child to its biological parents then that's her choice but she doesn't HAVE to do anything.
Both sets of parents should be suing the facility and have their treatments refunded. What a cruel situation to put a woman (who was already having fertility issues) in.
It must be hard for the biological parents no doubt about that, but surely they could understand that this woman has been carrying this child around and preparing for its arrival. This dilemma should be discussed among the birth parents and biological parents and left be.
The IVF certainly has no rights to be making demands of anybody and should be held accountable. Reply

Rob says: I personally feel that the mother has the right to decide whether she wants to keep the baby or not. I don't know what she signed up for but if she wants to keep the child then she should be allowed. Reply
