The Black Baby “Mistake”

Posted by ritualground on March 24, 2007

Over at Racialicious, Carmen discusses a lawsuit resulting from an error at a fertility clinic. From the New York Post excerpt:

A Park Avenue fertility clinic’s blunder has left a family devastated – after a black baby was born to a Hispanic woman and her white husband, the couple charges in a lawsuit. The mistake, made during in-vitro conception, wasn’t discovered until Jessica Andrews was born – and it became clear she didn’t look anything like her mom, Nancy, or dad, Thomas, the suit says.

As Carmen points out, one can only guess what future effect this legal action will have on the child:

Wonder how Jessica is going to feel when she grows up knowing that her darker skin caused such panic for her parents, and landed her family on front-page news.
