Dellirium: Can you imagine 1 million, bad-toothed, grinning, drunk Scotsmen that all looked alike?

Actually, the population of Scotland is just over five million.

MrT, I probably should've clarified - while it may not be an issue in Scotland, it is an issue here in the 'States, where we've had several cases in which the mothers of children conceived using donated sperm tracked down the donors for the purpose of establishing paternity and obtaining child support from the donors.

In one case, the father was allegedly tricked into acknowledging paternity, even though the pregnancy in question was established by in-vitro fertilization using donated sperm. In another case, even though the man not only donated sperm but had a verbal contract exempting him from responsibility for support, acknowledged by the clinic that took the donation, he's still being sued for child support.

Basically, the meager reward for sperm donation does not justify the risk, not any more. Sperm donors aren't just folks that walk in & wank - they go through quite a bit of screening, have to follow certain rules, and typically sign a contract requiring them to donate for a certain time period. Now that there's even a risk of becoming liable for the pregnancy generated from such a donation, it's just not worth the potential hassle.
