"Fertility Fraud": Woman Sues Doctor For 'Medical Rape' After He Fathered Her Baby Without Consent

The lawsuit says that the revelation led to the woman feeling "victimized" and has led to "debilitating anxiety and emotional pain"

Bianca Voss, 75, of New Jersey, has accused a New York City OB-GYN, Dr. Martin Greenberg, of "medical rape". The woman in a federal lawsuit said that the doctor had secretly used his own sperm to impregnate her nearly 40 years ago.

According to NBC, Voss had paid Greenberg $100 in 1983 to secure sperm from an anonymous donor at a sperm bank. The procedure led to a successful pregnancy and birth of her daughter, Roberta Voss, in 1984. Roberta purchased a DNA kit in 2020 which led her to dicover that her biological father was a man named Martin Greenberg, born in 1943 and now living in Florida. The complaint lodged by Voss's attorney Jason Kane reads, "Dr. Martin Greenberg inserted his own sperm into this patient, Bianca Voss. He did so without her consent and against her wishes. Some people call this horrific act 'medical rape.' But regardless of the name, Greenberg's heinous and intentional misconduct is unethical, unacceptable and illegal," reported the NBC.

Bianca explained, “I wanted someone anonymous. He did say, 'Do you mind the donor is Jewish?' And I said 'no' and that was it. I kind of thought it might be a medical student from the hospital, but that was it. And then he asked me for the check for $100 to cover the donor, his inconvenience." The lawsuit says that the revelation has led to Voss feeling "victimized" and has led to "debilitating anxiety and emotional pain." It further said that there was no way Voss would have signed off on Greenberg being the sperm donor. Joe Peiffer, another one of her attorneys pointed out that while the mother did not place any restrictions on who the donor could be she would have "never ever thought her doctor was inserting his own sperm into her, which she thinks is gross," reported NBC.
