Court: Man Can Sue Over Surprise Pregnancy

Fri Feb 25,12:06 AM ET Strange News - AP

By CARLA K. JOHNSON, Associated Press Writer

CHICAGO - A man who says his former lover deceived him by getting pregnant using semen obtained through oral sex can sue for emotional distress — but not theft, an appeals court has ruled.

Dr. Richard O. Phillips accuses Dr. Sharon Irons of a "calculated, profound personal betrayal" six years ago, but she says they had the baby through sexual intercourse.

The Illinois Appeals Court said Wednesday that Phillips can press a claim for emotional distress after alleging Irons had used his sperm to have a baby, but agreed that however the baby was conceived, Irons didn't steal the sperm.

"She asserts that when plaintiff 'delivered' his sperm, it was a gift," the decision said. "There was no agreement that the original deposit would be returned upon request."

The ruling sends the case back to Cook County Circuit Court.

Phillips, a Chicago family doctor, alleges that he and Irons never had intercourse during their four-month tryst, although they had oral sex three times. His suit contends that Irons without his knowledge kept some of his semen.

The relationship ended, the suit said, when Phillips learned Irons had lied to him about being recently divorced and was still married to another doctor.

Irons, who practices internal medicine in suburban Olympia Fields, said in a telephone interview Thursday that Phillips knew she was still married during their affair, and also knew she was pregnant with his child.

"He was very supportive and very happy about it," she said. "He said, `You need to hurry up and get your divorce.'"

He promised to marry her and asked her to quit her job, she said, but several days before her last day at work, Phillips informed her that he "couldn't go through with it."

Nearly two years after their affair, Irons filed a paternity suit and Phillips was ordered to pay $800 a month in child support, said Irons' attorney, Enrico Mirabelli.

Phillips then sued Irons, claiming her actions caused him nausea and headaches and robbed him of sleep and his appetite. He is haunted by "feelings of being trapped in a nightmare," court papers state.

The appeals court ruling followed a decision by a lower court judge who dismissed Phillips' suit in 2003.

its all bullcrap, he should be able to sue the crap out of her. Maybe even jail time, but then that would be punishing the child. Then again she may be to wierd to raise a child. Who the hell goes down on someone with the intention of stealing their sperm to impregnate themselves. And then she had the balls to ask for child support years later.

$800 in child support to a doctor hardly seems worth going through all of this...

Anyways I highly doubt you could save semen in your mouth long enough to get it somewhere that I could be preserved and have it still be viable. Outside the body sperm dies very quickly.

He's full of it.

I guess you can get pregnant from a BJ!!!! :eek:

$800 / month is a lot of money even for a doctor. We can't assume what he is making because it varies thorughout the profession. That's scary if true.

Come on, the guy got her pregnant and he should pay child support. He's a total nancy for trying to get out of it.

We also have no idea what could be going on as to why she waited 2 years. Maybe they had some sort of agreement and he decided to stop paying...

But to take seriously that she held the sperm in her mouth, stored it, and it was still viable when she went to impregnate herself? Come on, this isn't the X Files.

Remember occam's razor, whichever explanation is the most simple is probably the truth.
