Would you ask a friend for his sperm?
Women are saying they would choose a male friend to father their children if they had not met their ideal partner by a certain age, according to a recent study. Would you?
Independent research commissioned by Vitabiotics Pregnacare Conception (a vitamin supplement to support healthy conception) reveals that 56 per cent of women would look to a male friend as a sperm donor. Women aged 28-31 were most likely, at 64 per cent, to consider this option based on a survey of 3,103 single men and women aged 25-45.
Psychologist Dr Linda Papadopolous said: 'Reconstituted families, same sex families and single parent families are much more prevalent these days and rather than ascribing to the 'norm' it seems that women and men are more flexible with their definition of 'family'.'
Is it a woman's right to have a family at any cost or is this a case of natural instinct taking over from common sense? Have you considered what is best for the child?
Would you consider using a friend as a sperm donor or have you considered it and been put off by the legal ramifications of having a child with a friend?
