Fertility doctor used his sperm to make patients pregnant

It is astonishing news. A doctor in a fertility clinic was revealed to have used his own sperm to get his clients become pregnant.

As a result, at least 20 kids were born sharing genes with the doctor. On the other hand, he told that he donated his own sperm around 50 times for decades to help women get pregnant.

The State of Indiana has no legislation for punishing his acts. But he will be deprived of his physician license.

I can hardly imagine his motivation to have done such unethical things repeatedly. He may not be a sex offender. But he perhaps lacks basic thoughts of medical ethics. His acts are not easily compensated for clients and their children.

Fertility treatment is a relatively new-born region of medicine. There are many issues to be sophisticated for better outcome and happiness of relevant people. Strict management of donated sperm is one of the challenges.
