A UK woman was implanted with the wrong embryo and will have to give birth to another woman’s child. From the story

A pregnant mother will have to give birth to another couple’s baby after a blunder by an IVF clinic. Carolyn Savage had the wrong embryos implanted into her and will have to give the boy up to his biological parents as soon as he is born. Yesterday Mrs Savage, 40, who was expecting her fourth child with husband Sean, said: ‘The hardest part is going to be the delivery. I remember communicating with the [unnamed] mother of this child as to what I was envisioning and hoping for.’I said, “We want a moment to say hello, and goodbye”.

What if she chose to abort instead of give up her baby to another couple?  Happens all the time and it is her body.  Right?  Well, she could have, but chose not to:
The couple decided not to have an abortion because of their religious beliefs, and have met the other couple and arranged a handover. Mrs Savage added: ‘We will wonder about this child every day for the rest of our lives. ‘We have hopes for him, but they are his parents and we’ll defer to their judgment on when and if they ever tell him what happened and any contact that’s afforded us. ‘We just want to know he’s healthy and happy.’

Fanatic religious kooks, obviously.
