Sperm donation and ethics

Donation of sperm involves certain ethical considerations with regard to- the sperm donor’s rights, the client’s/recipient’s rights, selection of the donor and the capacity of an individual to donate sperm. The sperm banks conduct the process of collection, storage and transfer of sperms and need to follow ethics of medical science and the legal considerations of the jurisdiction.

  • It is the right of the donor that his identity shall remain private and not be disclosed to clients. He shall not be held responsible for the liability of the child born out of his sperms.
  • Similarly the clients also have the right to be clearly informed about the risks and side effects related to sperm donation. Though clinics critically examine the sperm samples there is no guarantee of the sperm being fully free from diseases and genetic disorders. Clients are also contract bound and must be aware of the sperm donor’s rights and are expected to be serious about their rights on the child born to them.
  • The sperm banks have different criteria in choosing the right donor, though the standard physical, educational and age factor remains same with most sperm banks.
