Politicians in the Australian state of Victoria have been asked to donate
sperm to replenish dwindling supplies.
Monash IVF clinic in Melbourne has written to all male politicians under the
age of 45, appealing for them to set an example.

Sperm stocks have become depleted since a 1998 law ordered donors to agree
to have their identities revealed when a child turns 18.

The clinic says it has not yet received any replies.

'Role models'

In a letter from the clinic's medical director, Prof Gab Kovacs, the
parliamentarians are asked if they have "ever thought of becoming a sperm
donor".

"We hope that if some of the leading role models within our community become
donors, others may follow suit," the letter says.

Prof Kovacs said he had been inspired by the success of a recent celebrity
campaign urging more people to become organ donors.

He said before the law changed, Monash IVF clinic had around 20 new donors a
year, while only five men signed up last year.

In December, 2004, an Australian fertility clinic in Albury, south-west of
Sydney, offered students in Canada a free two-week holiday in Australia in
return for sperm.

Other nations which have banned anonymity in the donation of sperm and eggs
have also experienced shortages, but they argue that a child's right to
trace his or her biological parent is more important than ensuring supplies.

FEMINAZIHATEMARTYR

Lets prepare a formal petition requesting Australian men deny this self-destructive appeal. Let the feminazi's reproduce themselves through parthenogenesis and at their own cost.

We must not make the mistake of thinking that all those who eat the bread of dictatorship are evil from the first; but they must necessarily become evil....The curse of a system of terror is that there is no turning back; neither in the large realm of policies nor the 'smaller' realm of everyday human relationships is it possible for men to retrace their steps."

How draconian, if supplies of eggs became depleted would female politicians be asked to set an example. No doubt such a concept even the suggestion would be deemed intrusive and discriminating.

Is this lack of supply of sperm any real suprise, many men who previously have given sperm will now withdraw (pardon the pun) their donations.

The main concern for many men with their anonymity being rescinded is in todays pc madness the mother knowing their identity may apply for child support even division of assets.

I wouldnt be suprised if she got it, which would set yet another lucrative precedent, however it is a dilemma as when the child grows up he or she should have access to the donors identity, but only when they turn 18 not before .

Maybe a range of laws and legal clauses should be implemented to protect donors from unscrupulous women who see this as a money making opportunity.

:shock:  I'm shocked, I say, shocked. Who could imagine that after a slew of cases around the world nailing anonymous donors (who gave out of the kindness of their hearts and as "role models" :)) for child support just might cause a few men to think twice about donating sperm. Perhaps its the Bill Clinton or JFK reps that polits get that make them think they'll donate?

I have no problem with kids finding out at 18 for purposes of genetic history/health issues but only as long as their are no legal/financial shenanigans allowed.
