Clinic asks politicians to donate sperm


Politicians in one Australian state have been asked to lend a hand and become sperm donors to help arrest dwindling supplies at an in-vitro fertilisation clinic.

The Monash IVF clinic has written to 25 parliamentarians aged less than 45 in Victoria state asking them to set an example for the rest of the male population by becoming sperm donors.

A Monash spo-keswoman said the clinic had about 100 clients on its books and only 13 donors. The clinic was yet to receive any answers from interested MPs, she said.
