Having a child and raising them into the world is amongst the most enjoyable life experiences any couple can enjoy. A decision to conceive a child should be based upon financial stability and the consensual choice made by a couple to bring up a child in the best possible manner. As children deserve to be brought up in a warm and welcoming home to provide the best possible future, it is important to be sure before considering the options available.
Although many couples across the United Kingdom are fortunate enough to have their own children, one in six encounters fertility problems which can hamper their chances of conceiving. This includes straight and same-sex couples who both deserve the right to become parents.
Being unable to have children can generate emotional stress which no couple deserves to endure in their efforts to become parents. Making a conscientious decision to donate sperm can be a selfless act by any man, and can provide couples who are less fortunate to have their own children with the perfect opportunity to do so.
The considerable shortage of sperm donors within the United Kingdom can provide the perfect incentive for fertile men to provide straight and same-sex couples with sperm that can be used in home insemination kits, and by IVF clinics. The latter are particularly affected by the inability to receive fertility treatment through the NHS, thus depend on willing donors to make donations to sperm banks which they can use through a personal agreement between both parties.
Infertile and same-sex couples are fully appreciative of the generosity of sperm donors who willingly donate in order to provide people with the best opportunity of having their own children. Not only do couples benefit, but donors can also receive a sense of pride that their actions have helped people who are maybe less fortunate than themselves to conceive through IVF.
