An article by the New York Post sheds light on the lack of genetic disease screening by a Manhattan sperm bank. According to the article, prior to November 1, 2014, Manhattan Cryobank failed to screen their donors properly. For eight years, the sperm bank sold sperm which they knew could contain genetic diseases.
Lawyer Dean Gresham represents one of the families. The parents say that although their children are okay, the kids had to go through the trauma of genetic testing, while they went through the pain of fearing the worst.
“Luckily their children tested fine. No genetic issues, at least,” said their Dallas, Texas-based lawyer, Dean Gresham to The Post. “But they paid for sperm that was supposed to have been screened.”
The Pennsylvania couple represent the third lawsuit filed against Manhattan Cryobank for the potentially disease-carrying sperm.
This case is ongoing. Read the full story on NYPost.
