Ethics of Choosing Sperm donation

Sperm banks across the UK and USA have different criteria for selecting their sperm donors. Some simply require screening and testing for diseases whilst some expect specific criteria to be met (including educational and academic criteria). Some would suggest that such criteria is tantamount to eugenics and therefore immoral but these are issues which have yet to be resolved. By law sperm banks simply have to carry any type of sperm which meets laboratory standards and has been consensually given.
Choosing to conceive via Sperm donation is not an easy option and is something which everybody involved should consider in depth. If it is right for you however then no one has the right to judge or question your decision – you know it’s right for you.
