The UK wants not only to remove the stigma of being sperm donors but wants also to elevate their status as well. Laura Witjens, who chairs the UK's National Gamete Donation Trust (I love the name), argues that sperm donors are asked to avoid sex and alcohol for several months and therefore should be paid more. Avoiding sex and alcohol for months, eh? Suuuuurrrrre, they are. I give the good chairperson her due for trying but I think she lost a few points when she referred to male sperm donors as the "red-headed step kids" of the infertility business. That saying may be used a lot in that profession, but I thought that crossed the line a little.
