At least he doesn’t blame God

I once had this interesting chat with a Doctor who hails from South Africa.  I wondered if health care here was too boring for him, but he said he was over dealing with knife, machette and gunshot wounds and snotty noses were just fine.

Then I asked him what would be the most fantastic case he was involved in, and he told me how the wife of a dumb but very rich farmer came into his office to get his medical opinion that the baby she was carrying could only have come from God, because she had been faithful to him (and he was infertile!)

A very similar story is in the media today.  Give it a read, and then vote what you think is going on.

A Kiwi family are fighting accusations that their mother was involved in a bizarre surrogacy scandal.  

Eygptian businessman Mohammed Fouad says his estranged wife – a Kiwi nurse with whom he lived in the United Arab Emirates – stole his sperm and used it to impregnate their Filipina maid without his knowledge. A daughter, Salwa, was born on Christmas Day 2010.

The middle-aged Kiwi woman, who theHerald on Sunday has chosen not to name, spent a week in a United Arab Emirates jail, accused of human trafficking as the saga played out in the oil-rich Arab state. She refused to comment this week when contacted by the Herald on Sunday. “No comment on untruths you have received.”

But the New Zealander’s Auckland-based family, including her adult children, were fighting back yesterday.

They hired barrister Charl Hirschfeld, who told the Herald on Sunday that the family absolutely disputed Fouad’s story.

Time for a poll.

Did Mohammed Fouad have his sperm stolen and was it inserted into his maid by his wife?
