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.........
Planned parenthood is losing money?
No more yankey his wankey.
THere are guys in the ghettoes who give it away free so is the FDA going after them? Good luck FDAers and where should we send your bodies?
Geeze, since when are the Feds the tube glue police?
LOL!!! The Feds met with him, “In my bedroom (???) and they gave me a ‘cease manufacturing’ order”!!!
What's the process here? If he isn't having relations with the women, then isn't there a doctor or clinic involved to put seed and egg together? Or is he just running a 'cup and a turkey baster' type operation?
I have purposed this exact problem will occur in black communities where women have multiple children by multiple man..... I can easily see half siblings having children and not even have a clue they are blood related.... I whole generation of black Prince Charles ....
Wonder if he could be forced to pay child support for those children...name should not have been made public...another person that doesn’t look ahead to possible consequences in this day and age..
Now that's funny.
That explains a lot.
The answer is yes. Regardless of any prior contractual agreement between a known male sperm donor and a female recipient, the welfare of the child has been and continues to be the overriding concern in any court regarding child support, whether or not the sperm donor waived parental rights, and regardless of involvement in the child's life or no involvement. The sperm donor is on the hook legally if the mother decides to pursue it, if he is known.
That would be an awesome disincentive
Ah, that's the issue then.
If he worked 24 hours a day, he could not make enough money to support 14 kids...yikes...I would say he should zip it up now that his name is known....celebrity is not always good...:O)
14+4 on the way
The guy needs a compound in Utah
The Donger need FOOD!
I was waiting for somebody to get the ref. ;-D
The incidence of birth defects for unrelated couples is 0.00013, in other words 13 out of one hundred thousand. The incidence of birth defects for a pairing of brother and sister is 0.00015 or 15 out of one hundred thousand. serious genetic complications start showing up in the forth generation of inbreeding siblings, the seventh generation of inbreeding first cousins.
Keep in mind that every last one of us are cousins to one degree or another.
Of course your point about inbreeding to the fourth generation tells us what the hell is wrong with a lot of Islam...
I still say it would be one hell of a surprise to find out during a juneteenth celebration you are hooking up with your half sibling....just saying...
