Description

The Orange County Register uncovered allegations that fertility doctors at one of the nation's leading university research hospitals were stealing eggs from dozens of patients, fertilizing them and implanting the embryos into other unwitting patients resulting in live births. The Register also found attempts at a coverup by the University of California that ranged from physical intimidation of employees to the payment of nearly $1 million in hush money.
