Quebec looking to limit sperm donations per donor after men from same family father hundreds


Quebec is looking at tightening the regulations around sperm donation in the province following the release of a documentary(opens in a new tab) that revealed three men from the same family fathered hundreds of children.

The series by Noovo Info, called “Pere 100 enfants,”(opens in a new tab) showed that the trio served as sperm donors for women across Quebec who turned to the internet to try to get pregnant.

Quebec’s public health director, Dr. Luc Boileau, said in an interview with Noovo Info(opens in a new tab) on Monday that he was “shocked” by the documentary. He said he would like to minimize the risks of artificial insemination by setting a maximum number of donations per donor, which other countries have already done, including France, the Netherlands, and Belgium.
