Woman sues fertility doctor, alleges ‘medical rape’
May 27, 2021 – New Jersey woman says home DNA kit has revealed her doctor is her daughter’s biological father, and she is now suing for “medical rape” and “fertility fraud” 36 years after the birth of the girl.
Bianca Voss, 75, says she discovered this when her daughter Roberta, 36, took a 23andMe DNA test to find out more about her family history. Voss says the test results included the name of his father, Martin D. Greenberg, MD, of Florida, who was the fertility doctor who inseminated Voss in 1983.
“Doctor Greenberg raped Bianca,” said her lawyer, Adam Wolf. The Washington Post. “He thought he could insert his own sperm into his patient’s body by cheating on her and without her consent. This is not only rude and unethical, but it is a serious violation of Bianca’s bodily autonomy.
According to a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, the retired doctor is being sued for assault and battery, fraud, intentional misrepresentation, negligence and negligent infliction of emotional distress. Voss asks for a jury trial, an unspecified amount of damages and that Greenberg provide his medical records.
“I hate that they have to know and live with the fact that their father and grandfather is a medical rapist,” Voss said at a press conference on Tuesday, according to People.
Greenberg’s attorney, Barry A. Postman, told the To post that the allegations are “unfounded”.
“My client has been retired for over 15 years and has no medical records and is not aware of any other documents suggesting that he was ever involved in Ms. Voss’ medical care,” he said. -he declares.
This is not the first time that a fertility doctor has been accused of using his own sperm to father children. Indiana doctor Donald Cline has fathered at least 50 children with his patients. And a Las Vegas doctor, Quincy Fortier, has faced at least 26 allegations of the same crime. It is not limited to the United States either. In 2019, a Dutch doctor fathered 49 children and in 2011 a Brazilian doctor was accused of fathering many of the 8,000 babies he helped deliver through fertilization programs.
