A white woman became extremely angry when she gave birth to a black baby, according to a lawsuit filed in Ohio.

36-year-old Jennifer Cramblett is suing a Downers Grove sperm bank for allegedly giving her vials of sperm from a black donor when she really wanted a white baby.

She claims that it is difficult for her and her partner to raise the black 2-year-old girl in an all white community. Cramblett of Uniontown, accused the Midwest Sperm Bank for wrongful birth and emotional distress.

Cramblett and Amanda Zinkon, chose donor No. 380, who is white, but doctors received vials of donor No. 330, who is black.

Cramblett learned of the error when she was pregnant and ordered more vials so that she can have another child with the same sperm donor, according to the lawsuit.

Cramblett gave birth to Payton.

She and her partner easily bonded with her, yet she lives every day with the fears, anxieties and uncertainties about her future.

Cramblett said that she did not know any black person until she went to college, and her entire community is racially intolerant.

Cramblett’s therapists have advised her to move to a racially diverse community with good schools.
