California Man.. Sperm Donations.. 14 Kids .. Feds order him to 'Zip it...'
He's a one man sperm bank.. And the Feds want him to stop.
36-year old Trent Arsenault lives in Northern California.
So far he's "fathered" 14 kids and has four more on the way.
But now.. the FDA wants him to stop. They've ordered him to 'shut it down.'
Arsenault says he's fighting the order - but he could face a $100,000 fine.
" Trent Arsenault connects with local couples on his website, trentdonor.org.

Ok... what exactly is he doing that is illegal?
***Ok... what exactly is he doing that is illegal?***
Buy one sperm- bring your own egg - get one baby.
This is a strange one and the story doesn’t fill in a lot of blanks (pun). I assume this guy sells his sperm to women with infertile men, or same-sex partners? Or donates it?
Does he give the sperm to a clinic who then uses it to artificially inseminate? Or does he do the deed with these women?
Either way, can’t see what the FDA has to do with it. Perhaps they are afraid that a half-sister/brother combination will be attempted in the decades to come, purely by chance? It is theoretically possible. Do they still require blood tests for marriage?
“Stop me before I sperm again!”
I don’t know if they still care if its incest, these days anything seems to go.
Following the link to findlaw.com, it looks like the sperm must be tested to be distributed.
He gives it away.
He’s fathering quite a few kids in the same area who wouldn’t know they share a father and could, potentially, mate. I doubt it’s illegal but it could be a problem later on.
But the FDA didn’t say anything to this guy:
So, for this to be legal he just needs to have sex with these women?
Free as in "speech," AND free as in "beer."
Hasn’t this guy ever heard of Direct Deposit?
hope he didn't get too friendly with the kids...sperm donor lost a child support case because of it.
“.. for this to be legal he just needs to have sex with these women?”
That’s what it sounds like to me. How many inter-city people have eight kids with eight different fathers? How many of these “fathers” have multiple children with multiple women? I guess where the emphasis right now is on sperm banks.
It does seem to be so.
If you’re going to spend all your time on the porn sites, might as well make a living of it.........
