Canadian Doctor Accused Of Secretly Using His Sperm To Impregnate Patients

Published: Nov 04, 2016

A former Ottawa fertility doctor used his own sperm to inseminate patients without their knowledge or consent, a family alleges in a new lawsuit that claims DNA tests show he is the father of at least two women whose parents sought help conceiving at his clinic.

A statement of claim filed on Tuesday alleges that Norman Barwin told plaintiffs Daniel and Davina Dixon he used Mr. Dixon’s sperm during fertility treatments the couple had at the Broadview Fertility Clinic in the late 1980s, but they now believe Mr. Barwin is the biological father of their daughter, Rebecca, who is also a plaintiff.
