Is there an obligation to donate sperm?
Earlier, I blogged about blood donation, and concluded that there was no obligation to donate, in part because my pain cannot be traded off against someone else's gain. According to the Independent, though, the UK also needs sperm donations. Now, unless one's doing something wrong, sperm donations usually aren't painful. So, is there still a cost to donating sperm that cannot be traded off against someone else's gain? I'm hard-pressed to find one, which suggests that, although there may not be an obligation to donate blood, there may be one to donate sperm.
