Antinori gets 7 years, 2 months in 'stolen eggs' case (3)


Milan, February 15 - A Milan court on Thursday
sentenced controversial world-famous Italian gynaecologist
Severino Antinori to seven years, two months in jail for taking
eight eggs from a Spanish nurse without her permission in April
The court also suspended him from his profession for five
years, six months, and convicted four other people in relation
to the case, with sentences of up to five years, two months.
It ruled that the Matris clinic where the eggs were taken
must remain impounded until the definitive sentence on the case
is handed down.
The young nurse, who was being treated at the Milan clinic
for an ovarian cyst, told police she was bound, sedated, forced
to undergo removal of her eggs and deprived of her cell phone
throughout the procedure.
However, there is a separate case ongoing against the nurse,
in which she is accused of slandering Antinori.
Antinori, 72, became famous for the world's first 'granny
In 1994 he assisted Italian woman Rossana Della Corte, aged
63, in becoming pregnant.
She became one of the oldest women in history to give birth.
In May 2006 it was announced that 62-year-old East Sussex
child psychiatrist, Patricia Rashbrook, was seven months
pregnant after being treated by Antinori, who said that 62 or 63
was the upper limit for IVF in healthy women.
He commented that he would only consider couples with at
least 20 years' life expectancy left for fertility treatment.
Josephine Quintavalle, from Comment on Reproductive Ethics
(CORE), accused Rashbrook of selfishness and said it would be
extremely difficult for a child to have a mother who is as old
as a grandmother.
In May 2009, after it was announced a 66-year-old woman was
pregnant, he criticised her decision saying that he felt she was
too old and may not live long enough to raise her child.
