A US man divorcing his wife is demanding that she return the kidney he donated to her or pay him $1.5m (£1m) in compensation.He really just wants to see his kids, but he is not getting any credit for giving a kidney.
Dr Richard Batista told reporters that he decided to go public because he was frustrated at the slow pace of divorce negotiations with his estranged wife.
He said he had not only given his heart to his wife, Dawnell, but donated his kidney to save her life. ...
He told reporters at his lawyer's office in Long Island, New York, that going public was a last resort.
"There is no deeper pain that you can ever express than betrayal from somebody who you love and devoted your life to," he said.
He said he had been prevented from seeing their three children for extended periods.
"I felt humiliated, betrayed, disrespected and disregarded for me as a person, as a man, as a husband, as a father."
