Skip to comments.Was Your Child Fathered by Thomas Lippert? (In Vitro Nightmare)
Posted on 05/10/2014 2:05:49 PM PDT by NYer
This is a very disturbing website. A man recently learned that he is not the father of his daughter. He and his wife are shocked because it turns out that the biological father was a man who worked at the IVF clinic.
They found out quite by accident as shown in this video.
Family Discovers Insemination Switch after Tracing Genealogy
The clinic worker is dead and the clinic is gone. The university associated with it is refusing to warn people about the possibility that this nutjob Lippert may have done this many times because "the burdens of this information are likely to outweigh the benefits to families."
Now the couple has a website as an attempt to warn people.
We believe that it is possible that Thomas Lippert has many biological children living in the Salt Lake City area, Minnesota and beyond. The parents of these children may be completely unaware that their child is not biologically related to the presumed father. If you or someone you know was conceived through artificial insemination at the fertility clinic associated with the University of Utah, otherwise known as Reproductive Medical Technologies, you need to be aware of this potential. We encourage you to have your children tested at one of three companies offering genealogy DNA tests where the biological relatives of Thomas Lippert have tested for comparison purposes. These are 23andMe, AncestryDNA and Family Tree DNA. This is not a legal paternity test and is for informational purposes only.
Although some may feel that it is preferable not to know if Mr. Lippert is the biological father of your child, we believe the knowledge of biological heritage is essential to avoid half-siblings who may be living in the same communities potentially engaging in romantic relationships, as well as for family medical history.
Thomas Lippert worked at the fertility clinic from 1986-1997 or 1998, but began donations in 1983. It is possible that his sperm sample was exchanged with other intended fathers' samples and/or was frozen under other names and used after this time.
It is never permitted to do something which is intrinsically illicit, not even in view of a good result: the end does not justify the means.
INSTRUCTION DIGNITAS PERSONAE ON CERTAIN BIOETHICAL QUESTIONS
F. Lee Bailey. Now, there’s a familiar name.
Here’s an extract from the Wikipedia article on him:
2.1 Sam Sheppard
2.2 “Boston Strangler”
2.3 Dr. Carl A. Coppolino
2.4 Ernest Medina
2.5 Patty Hearst
2.6 1994 DuBoc case
2.7 O.J. Simpson
2.8 William & Chantal McCorkle
"This is the town Professor Lippert told me about."
Based upon the birth and death dates of Thomas Ray Lippert (1950-1997), I am fairly sure that neither my father (1917-1968), nor myself (1946-Current) were fathered by him.
It is paramount to remember that this criminal was NOT A FATHER. In journalism they grasp for the right terms that sound more frightening. These children were FATHERED by the man they love and lived with, their Dad. Genetics doesn’t matter.
And these children are perfect, the way Gd made them. Important to remember that children conceived by criminals are still born pure and innocent.
I’ve met FReepers big in the pro life movement who were conceived by a violent rape on a virgin mom. They are innocent of the crime of this genetic sperm donor. Same here.

There are many, many reasons why IVF is just WRONG. This is but one of them. But a big one of them. Was this sicko the only man to do this? And what about "clinics" that use sperm for single women or women whose husbands have a low sperm count? How many half siblings are out there and don't know who their fathers are? Detestable. Violate natural law created by God and the result is suffering and trouble.
Don't think so. I was present at the original events and don't recall him.
I’m absolutely certain none of them was.
Affectionately known as Flea Bailey.
A class A jerk.
I beg to differ with you. As an adoptee and adoptive parent, rest assured that genes carry dna inherited from biological parents. That dna includes predisposition to all sorts of medical issues. Twins separated at birth and adopted by different families, once reunited, display many common personality traits.
I love my adoptive family as does my daughter but Genetics does matter!
But they have not found one other case.

I have not been following the story. Have they contacted all children conceived during that time frame and had them tested?
What do you base your view on? Scripture would appear to indicate that some children are born under what is essentially a curse, no? Good grief its repeated 4 times! 1. Exodus 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 2. Exodus 34:7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation. 3. Numbers 14:18 The Lord is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation. 4. Deuteronomy 5:9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,
Im glad that curses can be broken. Galatians 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
On another part of your comment, scripture does not agree that children are born pure and innocent
Psalms 51:5 - Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
Steve Garvey is NOT my Padre!
I know how you could solve this
Get everybody on Maury Povitch show LOL!
How do you define "self-serving?"
This nut job, and the university who hired him, all by themselves have created the obligation in the future, for all in-vitro clients to verify paternity at birth.
I certainly would. And sue their arrogant tenure into the next century!
Noble of you to make a most personal and individual painful decision on behalf of everyone else!
Were you born that way? Or did you really have to work at it?
Look up "personal" and "individual" in the dictionary...
