Ontario Fertility Doctor Faces Hearing Today – May Have Used His Own Sperm

An Ontario fertility doctor, previously disciplined for artificially inseminating several women with the wrong sperm, is set to appear before Ontario’s medical regulator today because he is now facing additional allegations, including that he deliberately used his own sperm in certain procedures.

Dr. Bernard Norman Barwin admitted to committing professional misconduct when he appeared before the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario‘s discipline committee in 2013, saying errors in his practice had left three patients with children whose biological fathers were not the ones they intended. He was suspended from practising medicine for two months, but later gave up his licence.
