ABSTRACT
The article presents a reprint of the article "Sperm donor pool shrivels when payments cease," by Roger Collier which appeared at www.cmaj.ca. It reports on the falling number of sperm donors in Canada due to the changes in the country's Assisted Human Reproductive Act stating that it is illegal to pay for sperm because it is not a commodity. According to Thomas Hannam, who runs the Hannam Fertility Centre in Toronto, Ontario, there were only 30 and 70 sperm donors after the approval of the act.
