A CRITICAL shortage of donor sperm has forced the state's largest IVF clinic to launch an online advertising campaign targeting male generosity.
Tougher restrictions on imported sperm has shrunk already scarce supplies while new legislation, which gives children the right to know the identity of their donor father, has seen a big decline in donor numbers.
