KIRKWOOD — Couples in the St. Louis suburb of Kirkwood and California are suing each other for control of two frozen embryos.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Friday that Edward and Kerry Lambert of Pleasanton, Calif., are suing to secure custody of the embryos from Jen and Patrick McLaughlin of Kirkwood.
Meanwhile, the McLaughlins are suing the Lamberts.
The Lamberts signed a contract in February 2009 that granted four embryos to the McLaughlins, who used two of the embryos to give birth to twin girls who are now three months old. But since then, the families have feuded over the fate of the remaining two embryos, which are currently stored in a San Francisco area clinic.
