An Asian American woman and cancer survivor in San Francisco is entangled in a fight to retain her frozen embryos, reports ABC7/KGO-TV.
Dr. Mimi Lee says it may be her only chance to ever have a child of her own.
“We’re prepared to take this up as far as the appeal goes,” Lee’s attorney, Peter Skinner, said.
Testimony wrapped up in the case Friday.
Lee and her then husband Steven Findley signed documents in 2010 to create embryos at UC San Francisco. Those documents stipulated that in the even of a divorce, the embryos would be destroyed.
Lee says she didn’t give the documents much thought having just been diagnosed with cancer.
Now that she’s divorced, she wants the embryos, but both UCSF and her former husband are fighting her.
