The Texas Medical Board voted last in October to investigate an East Texas fertility doctor for possible “unprofessional and unethical conduct” for using his own sperm to inseminate a woman who selected another donor, according to The Dallas Morning News. On Oct. 18, the board voted to reopen and continue an investigation of Nacogdoches obstetrician-gynecologist Kim McMorries.

Over the summer, an out-of-state expert on fertility fraud complained to the regulatory agency that McMorries’ actions – even for the mid-1980s — didn’t meet the required standard of care of infertile women, the Dallas Morning News reported.

Eve Wiley, a Preston Hollow mom born as a result of McMorries’ artificial insemination of her mother Margo Williams of Texarkana, was quoted as saying, “I was very surprised. To me, this is such a clear ethical violation. You’re taking advantage of your patient – and it’s a physical violation.”

Wiley, who was an Advocate magazine “Fierce Female” traveled to Austin by bus many weeks to lobby the Legislature and Gov. Greg Abbott to make fertility fraud a crime. She also appeared on ABC’s “20/20”.
