A 41-year-old Dutch man lied about the number of times he had donated in different clinics. They seek to stop him through the courts
A man from Belgium who donated sperm and helped father more than 550 babies will be brought to justice by one of the inseminated mothers and the Donorkindi foundation, which protects the interests of those born with this method. According to reports, the accused is 41 years old and had lied about donating sperm in clinics in different parts of the world.
The foundation has been told that it will initiate legal proceedings to try to stop the behavior of this man, accused of cheating women around the world, lying about the number of times he donated sperm. The man has given his sperm to at least 13 clinics in the Netherlands and abroad, and “he is also approaching prospective parents looking for a donor to inseminate his home through meeting platforms and social media and lies about the number of children he has had,” he says. foundation
Assisted reproduction does not require a sperm donor to do it successfully a maximum of 25 times or to help 12 families in total. This arrangement aims to avoid congenital, incestuous and psychological problems of people born by this method. But Donorkind counts the man as a father who has helped more than 550 children.
“Since he has indicated to the mothers that he does not want to go against the customs and to go to the new fathers recently, it is requested that a ban on further donations be sanctioned, so that they do not touch the new fathers. to be, and to write in no way, so as to ask for the destruction of his stored sperm, advises Donorkindus.
Eva, the mother, who is now starting a complaint in court against this matter, promises that she did not promise her father more than 25 children when she chose him as a donor in 2018. “If I had known that I had already had more than a hundred children, I would never have chosen. When I thought about the consequences that could happen to my son, I was left in a bad body and uncertain about the future: how many more children will there be? In conversations with the donor, many mothers asked him to He stops, but it doesn’t help,” said Eve.
His lawyer Mark de Hek warns that the donor is acting illegally “by imposing the first attack of generation” and warns that “this behavior is dangerous for the mental well-being and health of the children born from the donation”.
The Dutch association of gynecologists NVOG first warned about this man in 2017, when it became known that he had given birth to at least 102 children in the Netherlands through 10 different clinics. No donor was identified by the Dutch, but he continued to donate in other countries where he was unknown, such as Denmark and Ukraine.
