Eve's Parents Decision

Eve's Parents Decision

After two weeks of joy, somewhat spoiled by a real concern for their baby, Eve's parents have decided to postpone their decision to grant access to an independent expert. They will allow the test to be performed only when they have the absolute guarantee that the baby will not be taken from them. There are several means to achieve that, including having Eve become a non-US citizen, which is a difficult decision for the parents.

Dr. Brigitte Boisselier declares: "If by having to prove my credibility I have to risk in any way the separation of the mother and the baby, as a mother myself, I will never hesitate. Potential customers of our company have to know that they will always have the priority and I will no longer ask future parents by contract to reveal their identity. I could never have imagined that there would be such insensitive people in the world as this attorney willing to separate a healthy baby from her happy family. I am sure that all the mothers of the world will support my decision. If I have to choose between science and love I will always choose love."

Dr. Boisselier adds that she is confident tests will be performed on either one of the five babies born or due to be born by February 5th. She also says that she is happy that no tests have been performed before the announcement since the independent expert would have had to reveal the identity of the parents if a judge were to ask. "The happiness of Eve and her parents is more important than my reputation. She is alive and healthy and tests can be performed at any time in her life. There will always be a time to re-establish my reputation. Meanwhile other babies are coming and among them, some will be made public", concluded Dr. Boisselier.
