Sperm Bank Mix-up Creates Siblings of Different Races

Sperm Bank Mix-up Creates Siblings of Different Races

A British couple whose two children were conceived using IVF treatments and sperm were stunned to discover that their second child has a different racial background than the rest of the family.

They had intentionally requested sperm from the same donor so that their children would be biological siblings, but a mix-up at their sperm bank, London Women's Clinic, created a different outcome. The bank is now under investigation.

The couple has stated, "We love our children very much, and whilst the current situation may have implications for us, that in no way detracts from our love of our children and contentment with them in our lives, whatever their race."
