A mamma-to-be may use a sperm bank for many reasons:
-She's a single lady
-Her partner has azoospermia (near to no detectable sperm)
-Her partner has compromised semen quality
-Her partner is unable to donate sperm due to a history of physical injury or cancer treatment
If you are considering using a sperm donor, you need to understand it from all angles.
Using a credible sperm bank has many legal and medical advantages. It can also really increase your odds of pregnancy success and having a healthy baby.
Using a sperm bank probably was never in your childhood vision of how you'd make a family, but learning more about it may allay many fears and misconceptions.

He is now engaged to be married and is trying to meet the 70 plus children he has convieved. Could you marry a man that use to be a sperm donor, especially if he wanted to meet all of his children? If you were a child convieved this way would you want to meet a man that didnt concieve you out of love but because he wanted to make easy money?

As lesbians, the way we conceive, typically, is through donor conception, and donor conception is whole new paradigm for most of us. There are many intricacies, details and lots of new information to learn. How do sperm banks work? How selective are they with the guys that may be the future biological father of your child? What kind of background study do they do on these guys? How extensively do they test for disease or genetic conditions? How many biological siblings might your child have out in the world? How do they handle future contact with the donor? How do you talk to your child about donor conception? What are the chances your child is going to want to contact their donor? Alice Ruby, executive director The Sperm Bank of California (TSBC) is on the show to answer these questions and more. TSBC was the first sperm bank in the country to serve lesbians and other unmarried women. As the only non-profit sperm bank in the country, TSBC does immense amounts of research the outcomes and implications of donor conception for parents, donor-conceived individuals, and donors. TSBC offers tons of resources on their site for lesbian parents looking to conceive. Find out why TSBC may be a great option for your choice in sperm banks.

Author Stu Strumwasser takes us inside the many places that Jack frequents as we learn how deals are made, find out how he prospers as an organ broker, where you get illegal organs and the way the process works in a business that is lucrative and is going on today. Developing a network that would take him all over the world, finding hospitals and buyers where the procedure would be done safely. Jack’s rationale is that he’s helping people but at a large profit. Imagine having to wait years for a kidney when paying for one would get you what you need faster. Why wait and place yourself on a long list where you might never get what you need in time? Learn more when you hear the interview and the discussion about the black market dealing with selling organs to the highest bidders. Meet the author and join us in the chatroom. Fran Lewis
Thug politicians use the same handbook over and over receiving legalized dollars from thug CEOs, and never delivering promises made to voters. Politicians tell all who will listen the same thing they said to get elected last time, the last two times, the last 30 years. Thugs keep their paychecks and keep their pockets open to the largest bidding criminal dough donor. Politicians distribute favors using tax payers dollars for money from lobbyist. Thug politicians organize & legalize their work with CEOs, to favor ALEC against voters. These suited up thug politicians critize people & government. The masses, mostly Whites allow it. What other employers would allow such behavior? We have do nothing politicians and do nothing voters and non-voters. To get more we only need a well thought out plan, actions, and follow through. Quit hoping and wishing for the suited poitical thug who will change your life. Only you and I can change our lives by pressuring politicians thugs of not to do the jobs we hired them to do. Term limits has to enter the equation if we don't want to live in a global waste land of have nots while the haves live in lavish luxury, which they hand down to their offspring and you and I can only hand down debt and death to your offspring. Advertise your plans to your elected officials and get to work today expecting to see some results before elections begin.
