Do you give a toss?

Due to a change in legislation in 2005, removing the anonymity of sperm donors, the numbers in the UK have dropped to an all-time low with Northern Ireland having none!

Sperm donation is often the only way childless couples can conceive.

Many men would be willing to donate if they were guaranteed anonymity. The current law allows children born from donation to be given the donor's details when they become 18.

There was a programme on BBC 3 tonight about the crisis, Check out this link - The Great Sperm Crisis.
