The risk of “casual sex” due to Meijer’s extensive donation
According to the outlet, Donorkind guidelines stipulate that sperm donors cannot father more than 25 children or impregnate more than 12 mothers. Additionally, the outlet reports that these guidelines exist to prevent “breeding” and “incest.”
Donorkind says Meijer has fathered 550 children.
The organization also explained that there is a huge “psychological impact” on children who learn they have “hundreds of half-siblings”. The organization’s lawyer, Mark de Heck, described Meijer’s behavior as “dangerous to the mental well-being and health of donor children.”
The mother behind the lawsuit shares her thoughts.
according to InsiderThe woman behind the lawsuit, identified as Eva, shares a daughter with Meijer. The child is said to be born in 2018.
The woman said Meijer assured her that he had “only fathered 25 donor children at most.”
Additionally, Eva stated that she would not have chosen Meyer as a donor had she known of his extensive donations to DonorKind.
“I feel sick in my gut when I think about the consequences this could have on my son and I’m sure about the future: How many more children?”
Eva states that taking legal action is the only way to protect her son.
The suit calls for Meijer to be barred from further sperm donations and to stop contacting prospective parents. In addition, the lawsuit asks Meijer to notify the clinics that store the sperm so they can immediately destroy the samples.
