I am not this nice.

If you haven’t heard the story, the short version is this:

A lady went in for IVF. An embryo that she had previously frozen was implanted and she became pregnant. Then she found out that the embryo actually belonged to another couple. The clinic made a mistake.

The lady, Carolyn Savage, carried the baby, gave birth on Thursday and delivered him to his natural parents. No fights, no lawsuits. No discussions of abortion or custody.

I saw the story below on the Today Show this morning. The legal and moral issues are dumbfounding, but it is so nice to see someone do the (incredibly) magnanimous thing first and worry about suing the clinic later.
