UK National Sperm Bank
(Birmingham, England) Britain's national sperm bank has few donors, only nine.
It is now planning a recruitment drive, with chief executive Laura Witjens saying that appealing to male pride may be an effective way to boost donations.Children born from donated sperm will be told the name of their father at age 18.
She has suggested a new campaign featuring a cartoon superhero, echoing a successful strategy in Denmark.
A change in UK law in 2005, removing anonymity for sperm donors, is thought to have led to a drop in volunteers.
