#G147* – Debra SIMS & BABY SHANNON – THEN THE SS!!
Baby joy for ‘infertile’ couple
first published Wednesday 25th Jun 2003.
A woman gave birth to a baby girl four years after she was wrongly told her husband was infertile.
Debra Sims, 38, fell pregnant after becoming the first woman to try a controversial new fertility treatment.
She is now nursing a healthy daughter named Shannon but has told how, during her ordeal, she had almost given up hope of having a baby, her marriage was close to collapse and on her darkest days she even contemplated suicide.
She and her husband Tony had been trying for four years for a baby but NHS fertility doctors had told them there was little hope.
With Mr Sims unemployed, there was no chance the couple could raise the thousands of pounds needed for private IVF treatment.
However, following years of heartache, Mrs Sims found the NHS had confused two files and wrongly told her husband, 12 years her junior, he was infertile.
She made the discovery after approaching Professor Ian Craft, of the Logan Centre for Assisted Reproduction in London, who she had heard wanted to run a controversial private project called Egg Giving.
She was told she could receive the treatment for free and agreed to be the first to try it.
Mrs Sims, of Brodrick Road, Eastbourne, said: “When I was told Tony was infertile I was devastated. I wanted children so much and being told I was unlikely to have any made me want to kill myself. My marriage almost broke up because of the pressures and I was a nervous wreck.
“I was disgusted to find out it was all a lie and that Tony had a healthy sperm count. We have been through hell for nothing.”
The egg giving procedure means women donate a cycle of eggs, stimulated from the ovaries with drugs, to an infertile woman.
In return, the donor has IVF treatment, using a second cycle of her eggs, for £950 – seven times less than the average private cost and about half of that on the NHS.
Mrs Sims fell pregnant with the second cycle of eggs, using her husband’s sperm.
She spoke of her joy at giving birth to Shannon, now 15 month old, yesterday when Prof Craft began offering the treatment to other woman at a cost of almost £6,000.
The Prof launched the treatment, trials of which began in 2001, following Mrs Sims’ success.
Critics, including fertility expert Lord Winston, said it exploited women. Fertility support groups gave the scheme a cautious welcome, saying there was a dire shortage of so-called altruistic donors in Britain.
Mr and Mrs Sims, however, care little about the controversy. Mrs Sims said: “Shannon is our little miracle.”

‘The arrogance and hubris of corrupt politicians
will be responsible for every drop of blood spilt
in the Wars of Disassociation, if Britain does not
leave the EU.
The ugly, centralised, undemocratic supra national policies being imposed by the centralised and largely unelected decisionmakers of The EU for alien aims, ailien values and to suit alien needs stand every possibility of creating 200,000,000 deaths across EUrope as a result of the blind arrogance and hubris of the idiologues in the central dictatorship, and their economic illiteracy marching hand in glove with the idiocy of The CAP & The CFP – both policies which deliver bills, destroy lives and denude food stocks.
The EU, due to the political idiocy and corruption of its undemocratic leaders, is now a net importer of food, no longer able to feed itself and with a decreasing range of over priced goods of little use to the rest of the world to sell with which to counter the net financial drain of endless imports.
British Politicians with pens and treachery, in pursuit
of their own agenda and greed, have done more
damage to the liberty, freedoms, rights and democracy
of the British peoples than any army in over 1,000 years.
The disastrous effects of British politicians selling Britain
into the thrall of foreign rule by the EU for their own
personal rewards has damaged the well-being of Britain
more than the armies of Hitler
and the Franco – German – Italian axis of 1939 – 1945.

Miss sims is still getting alot of abuse from horrible people to this day she has been attacked when she was cleared of all charges the press need to clearly write this
Theresa, do note that Debbie and I have been in contact for many years and it was I who published the facts in this case, after lengthy conversations with both Debie & Tony, that led to my friend Christopher Booker featuring the true story of Debbie, Tony & Shannon in The Sunday Telegraph.

Small minded people have looked up this story and think she was an animal abuser when she wasn’t involved with any abuse she now sees her daughter but to this day still gets loads of abuse people have nothing better to do papers did not help in the beginning making her out to be a monster when she’s a very kind person
Do be minded, that is the very reason why, after detailed conversation with both Debbie & Tony I put them in touch with one of Britain’s best journalists, Christopher Booker and ensured their story was accurately covered and published in The Sunday Telegraph rather than the many gutter rags who are dependent on gossip & scandal for lack of discerning journalists or even sound legal checking.
Thanks to these journalists not updating the true facts that no charges where brought on Debra she has had endless abuse she feels helpless that people are only interested in the beginning of the case if she explains the true she branded a lier two grown men tried to attack her which has led her to feel very angry about the press not dealing with the case like Chris booker the press has taken her quality of life away
