Pulse.com.gh took to the streets to ask Ghanaian men if they are ready and willing to donate their sperm for GH¢2.500 per week and GH¢10.000 per month in cash.
A young man has said he is ready to donate his sperm and take GH¢2.500 every week in view of the country’s current financial crisis.
“You donate your sperm, you take your money. Do you understand? That money is money … because if they say God will bless you, it’s the type of blessing. We don’t have dirty money,” said the gentleman.
“What I think about before donating my sperm is that the economy is not good. I think about my future, maybe this is my future,” he said.
Some said they donate twice a week.
But some men disagreed and said that sperm is their property.
Meanwhile, nutritionist Fred Ames has stated that children produced as a result of the practice may have some future consequences, including the possibility of unknowingly marrying in the future and thereby having sex.
He also spoke out against payment in lieu of sperm and egg donation, saying the practice could be illegal.
Sperm donation involves a man donating his sperm for use in assisted reproduction to help a woman or a couple experiencing male infertility achieve pregnancy.
