First Internet Sperm Bank Baby

The Birth of the first internet sperm bank baby was announced yesterday - a 10lb 2oz boy. As the sperm is fresh the HFEA have no authority to regulate the "introduction agency"

The HFEA is concerned that the sperm donor may not have been adequately screened for diseases the child could inherit. And while men who donate sperm to regulated clinics are legally not considered to be the father of any child, that may not be so for internet sperm donors, it adds.

"The HFEA cannot guarantee good laboratory practices and safe testing of donated sperm from unlicensed donation services. Women wishing to use donated sperm are advised to do so through an HFEA licensed clinic where donated sperm is thoroughly tested and legal parentage is set down in law," said Suzi Leather, HFEA chairman.

The all-inclusive service from ManNotIncluded costs 1285 pounds of which the donor gets 40 quid per deposit.
