In the United Kingdom, 26-year-old Kenzie Kilpatrick has fathered 10 babies by nine women and calls himself the Facebook Sperm Donor. Kilpatrick decided to become a sperm donor after researching the topic on the Internet. According to the Birmingham Mail, he also claims that he just wants to help women fulfill their dreams and only asks for travel compensation. Last June, Kilpatrick started a Facebook group called Drama Free UK Sperm Donors and the page has over 200 members.
The families that have received his sperm include lesbian couples and heterosexual couples that have struggled with infertility. Kilpatrick said the following about his sperm donations: “To know I’ve helped people who have suffered for so long, desperately wanting to have a baby, has been my biggest motivator.”
He added, “I also feel incredible knowing that I will have ten babies out there continuing my genes. But I don’t feel like I need to know the babies or stay in touch with their families – I just provided the sperm. I’m not attached to them. It’s not the same when you’re a man as it is when you’re a woman and you carry a baby for nine months. Surrogate mums face very different emotions to what I feel.”
Although his business has been successful, he admits that it hasn’t been without problems. In fact, one woman who conceived after receiving his sperm decided she no longer wanted a baby and was going to have an abortion. Kilpatrick said, “I was devastated. I even offered to look after the baby myself if she felt that strongly. However, in the end she suffered a miscarriage.”
Kilpatrick says the way his business works is he arranges to meet women at their home or hotel rooms and then produces a sperm sample that they can inseminate privately. Additionally, he claims he’s been thoroughly tested for sexually transmitted diseases and isn’t in the business for the money. He said, “It’s not about the money. I have helped people to make a family, something they have truly longed for. You can’t beat the feeling that gives you. It seems that I am incredibly fertile. And as a man that does give me a sense of pride.”
However, now Kilpatrick plans to stop donating sperm because he wants a family of his own. He said “I am desperate for a child of my own and I have found a lesbian couple who want to co-parent with me.” Of the women he’s donated to, six recently gave birth and three more are due within the next month.
As LifeNews previously reported, artificial insemination is largely controversial in the pro-life community because it opens up Pandora’s box to genetic engineering, pre-implantation diagnosis, and embryonic stem cell harvest.
