Woman sues US FDA for right to private donor's sperm

BioNews - Woman sues US regulator for right to private donor's sperm: The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, is in a same-sex relationship and wants to conceive a child using a friend's sperm by home insemination. FDA regulations, however, require all sperm donors – including both those who donate through clinics and privately - to undergo medical tests, which the plaintiff claims restricts her freedom to have children. The lawsuit, filed by the campaign organisation Cause of Action on the woman's behalf, states this requirement is unfair because heterosexual couples do not have to undergo costly and time-consuming tests before they have intercourse.
