Prominent fertility doctors nationwide have engaged in the unauthorized and illegal sharing of human eggs for more than a decade, according to a federal lawsuit filed on behalf of a defunct local firm and its egg donors.
The suit, filed earlier this month in U.S. District Court in Northern California, accuses the fertility industry of trying to cover up “a major medical ethics scandal” and seeks at least $5 million on behalf of Options National Fertility Registry and its donors.
It names the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology and 102 doctors as defendants.
