Britain Needs a Few Good Men

Independent reports:
Couples are to be offered free fertility treatment in return for donating sperm to other women who are desperate for children. The offer, by the Care group of IVF clinics, comes as fertility experts warned that the shortage of sperm stocks in the UK was reaching crisis levels and had plummeted to a record low.
The chronic shortage of sperm stocks in the UK has also prompted approaches to Britain's soldiers to donate sperm, in a move reminiscent of Lord Kitchener's "Your Country Needs You" recruitment campaign in the First World War.
