Lesbian couple
sues lab that lost their embryos

A lesbian couple are suing a Manhattan sperm and embryo bank, alleging that it lost six of of their embryos. The New York Daily Newsreports that the suit against Repro Lab by Adriana Pacheco and Cathy Berger was filed in the Manhattan supreme court, with the couple seeking at least $3 million in damages.

Berger signed an embryo storage agreement with the company in May 2003 that required them to release the embryos at her request. When the couple requested to retrieve them in May 2006 for a frozen embryo transfer cycle, Berger was informed that they "were missing, could not be found and had been lost," according to the lawsuit.

"Repro Lab should have dealt with the embryos with the greatest of care," Susan Dennehy, a lawyer for the couple, told the DailyNews. "It's a sacred trust."

According to the article, the couple have children but would not state how many. (The Advocate)
