Ancestry.com Test Reveals Woman's OB/GYN Might Be Her Biological Father

Ancestry.com Test Reveals Woman's OB/GYN Might Be Her Biological Father

According to the lawsuit, Rowlette was not aware at the time that her now-divorced parents, Howard Fowler and Sally Ashby, had gone to Dr Mortimer when they were living in Idaho in the 1980s because they were having trouble conceiving.

She later learned it was the name of her parents' fertility doctor, who without consent allegedly used his own sperm to impregnate her mother.

The documents say Dr. Mortimer recommended that the couple undergo a procedure where a donor's sperm would be mixed with Mr. Fowler's genetic material in the medical lab prior to insemination to increase the chances of conception, where 85 percent of the mixture would be Mr. Fowler's genetic material, and 15 percent would be that of a donor's (selected by Ms. Ashby and Mr. Fowler).

The lawsuit alleges Dr Mortimer used his own sperm for the procedure, secretly and against the couple's wishes to use a college student.

Rowlette is suing Mortimer, his wife and the Obstetrics and Gynecology Associates of Idaho Falls over the incident.

But in July 2017, Ashby and Fowler's daughter Kelli Rowlette "received a notification on Ancestry.com that a DNA sample she had submitted matched with Dr. Mortimer's DNA sample", according to the complaint. Ashby tells her now ex-husband Fowler the results, and they both sit on the news for several months, unsure whether or not to tell their daughter.

Mortimer was Rowlette's doctor after her birth and the lawsuit states the parents remember the doctor crying when they informed him they were moving to Washington.

But she is said to have been even more shocked to allegedly discover her real dad was the doctor who they asked for help.

She is now reportedly suing the doctor, claiming medical negligence, battery and fraud.

IUI - intrauterine insemination or artificial insemination - is a fertility treatment that involves directly inserting sperm into a woman's womb.

When Kelli Rowlette took a DNA from Ancestry.com, she hoped to find out about her genealogical history.

The Ancestry.com DNA test provides customers with likely genetic matches for those interested in genealogy.

Believing that the results were a mistake, Rowlette gave her mother access to her Ancestry.com account, according to the lawsuit.

A woman has launched legal action after a DNA test revealed that her biological father was the fertility doctor that her parents had visited while they were trying for a baby.

Mortimer could not be reached for comment.

"Ms. Ashby contacted Mr. Fowler, now her ex-husband, and relayed the information she obtained from Ancestry.com".

Rowlette also later discovered that her birth certificate had been signed by Mortimer.

It wasn't until Rowlette was helping clean up her father's house that she finally discovered her parents' connection to Mortimer.
