Make money now by donating sperm

 

As a result of a nationwide sperm donor shortage, a national sperm bank in Birmingham has been set up to encourage donors.

Some people are having to wait five years to get a sperm donation, so the new sperm bank plans to attract more people to donate sperm, particularly from ethnic minorities as 86% of sperm donated is from those with a white background, and distribute it across the country.

The shortage has been encouraging women to seek out Danish Sperm banks, leading to the so-called ‘viking babies’ phenomenon.

If you’ve ever considered donating sperm then now is a great time for you to step forward and do your bit for the people of the UK.

It might seem an easy decision to make, it’s a fairly easy way to make some money if you’re a man (in fact it could be seen as a way to make money out of a leisure activity!), but you shouldn’t take the decision too lightly. 

A change in the law in 2005 means donation is no-longer anonymous and children can trace their biological parents at the age of 18.

 

 

According to the HFEA, a sperm donor has the following legal responsibilities:

  • You won’t be the legal parent of any child born as a result of your donation
  • You’ll have no legal obligation to any child born from your donation
  • You won’t be named on the birth certificate
  • You won’t have any rights over how the child will be brought up
  • You won’t be asked to support the child financially.
