Approximately 36 children in the U.S. Great Britain, and Canada were born with sperm from a donor who, according to lawsuits from 10 different families, is mentally ill.
According to the Athens-Clarke County Police, the donor claimed to have a bachelors and masters degree and had been working on his Ph.D. Last week the donor turned himself in and said that he had falsified paperwork at the Georgia sperm bank.
One of the families suing the sperm bank is Angela Collins. When Collins and her partner wanted to have a child, they reached out to a sperm bank in Georgia to look for potential donors. They thought they had found the ideal match in Donor 9623, described as a man with an I.Q. of 160 who was healthy and working toward his Ph.D.
