Scary Sperm-Swapping Scandal


21-year-old Annie Branum is wondering who she really is after learning that the sperm her mother received from a Utah fertility clinic was tampered with.

In 1991, Pamela Branum visited Reproductive Medical Technologies and received the sperm of fertility clinic worker Thomas Ray Lippert instead of her husband’s sperm.  Lippert may have tampered with other samples as well.

Special thanks to Laura Galvan (Attorney, San Antonio, Texas) for bringing this article to my attention.
