    Sperm shortage afflicts Britain

    Sperm shortage afflicts Britain

    LONDON - The British Fertility Society is warning that the country is facing a shortage of men willing to donate sperm.

    Fertility clinics are struggling to recruit donors, have long waiting lists and high costs and in some parts of the country, there are no clinics at all.

    The warning came today in the British Medical Journal from Mark Hamilton and Allan Pacey, members of the fertility society's board of directors.

    They say part of the problem is that Britain banned anonymous sperm donation in 2005. Children who were born to a donor can now trace their biological parents once they are 18. About 4,000 women a year in Britain need donor sperm to become pregnant, but in 2006, only 307 men registered to become donors.

    Does donating sperm make sense to anyone? Leaves me with a unsettling feeling having unknown offspring maybe having to go it alone someday.

    Even ugly girls can get laid, just got to find the right drunk at any party, anyway 307 donors should be enough for 4,000 women, they only need a couple of tadpoles each, its not as though they are drinking it

    If you donate sperm in the UK, any subsequent kid has the right to child maintainance.

    Don't say I didn't warn you.

    Doesn't child support (maintenance) usually stop at 18?

    It isn't so much the threat of current legislation that is likely to be deterring potential donors, but the thought that, having been reassured you can't be traced until the child is 18, some future do-good government changes the law and donors wind up becoming liable for child support five or ten years after the event.
    I see fish. They are everywhere. They don't know they are fish.

    Maybe these ugly fuckers as you put it, should fly over to Thailand and get a young wipper snapper Thai boy!

    Some couples can't concieve because of the males sperm count. It's not just about ugly fuckers.

    Are there sperm donor clinics in Thailand?

    I am sure it would be a big money business where farangs could get paid to donate
    with as many Thai women I have met that want luukkruhn.

    Yep, and the danger of a future gov enacting that form of legislation is that it becomes retroactive, in order to 'protect the rights' of those that would never have been born, to harass their benefactors.

    Exactly mate. Even the most socially concious bloke is going to have second thoughts once the damn of anonimity was breached (i.e. they can contact you when they are 18) - and as you say once that wall is breached, it will only be a matter of time before, say a woman takes the donation, gets a kid, then has a husband bugger off and she initiates child support proceedings against the donor.
