Ottawa doctor loses Order of Canada after sperm mix-ups

Norman Barwin had his Order of Canada revoked after being disciplined by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario for inseminating women with the wrong sperm.

Norman Barwin founded Canadians for Choice, and they have a scholarship named after him.

He is accused of having used his own sperm to inseminate his patients. Two cases were settled out of court with the usual confidentiality provisions.
