The piece looks at the legal implications of misconduct in fertility treatment, and discusses Dr Norman Barwin, the fertility doctor who is alleged to have inseminated patients with the wrong sperm, sometimes his own. Peter, alongside Frances Shapiro Munn, is representing plaintiffs in the Barwin case. In the article, he discusses the impact for the patients involved: “It is devastating for these people. It’s multilayered. It’s very complex. The psycho emotional responses are very difficult.”
