Nordic sperm imports banned in US

Distressed women can’t access Viking sperm
Some American women are unhappy because the US Food and Drug Administration
has banned the importation of foreign sperm to prevent the possible spread of
mad cow disease.  Nordic sperm banks have been hit hard by the restriction. They
were popular suppliers because their donors were blonde, blue-eyed, tall and
well-educated. They also had a clearer genetic heritage. The Washington
spoke with one woman, Julie Peterson, who desperately wanted the same
sperm donor so that her daughter could have a sibling with the same biological
father. Now women are having to go to scalpers for the few vials of frozen
Nordic sperm which are still available in the US, or they have to travel to
Mexico, Canada, or even back to Denmark. ~ Washington
