A UK man has made a confession on a Facebook group to be the father of 22 kids after illegally advertised his sperm on the various social media platform. According to the man, he donates his sperm to women free of charge, without getting a dime from him.
He invites a lady who is in desperate need of a baby to meet him at a roadside at his apartment close to Glasgow where he hands over his sperm in a container for free.
The donor, using a false name known as Anthony Fletcher, claims to have given out his sperm to more than 50 women who have traveled from across the United Kingdom just to have a baby.
He labels himself as a 39-year-old university graduate of an average height with blue eyes and brown hair.
But health specialist has warned that his sperm donating activities are ‘incredibly dangerous’.
Initially, Mr. Fletcher has considered donating through a clinic legally, however, the right of any child that has been produced to know their natural father’s identity when they turn 18, put him off.
Instead, he chose to advertise his sperm on Facebook.
However, it is illegal to distribute sperm and eggs in the UK without obtaining a license from the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA).
Mr. Fletcher posted this on Facebook:
‘I’m an active and experienced sperm donorbased a few miles from Glasgow.
‘I’m still available to help more women get pregnant. I’m happy to donate to single women, same-se.x couples, and women in heterose.xual relationships.
‘Be sure to let me know your rough location, your age, your relationship status, and the donation method you’re looking for. I do NOT charge for donations.’
Dr. Hana Visnova, who is a specialist in reproductive health and medical director at IVF Cube in the Czech Republic, has disclosed the dangers of procuring sperm on the black market.
‘These tales of black market sperm donation are becoming more common.
‘People who are desperate for children but who are having difficulties and aren’t eligible for NHS care can become desperate.
‘But finding a donor online, knowing nothing about them and having no knowledge of their health or background, is incredibly dangerous. You’re not only putting yourself at risk, but also your potential offspring.
‘Clinics in the UK and abroad are tightly regulated to ensure the highest standards are met.
‘We are getting an increasing number of patients from the UK frustrated with NHS options and who cannot afford private treatment at home.’
