[Extract] Findlaw recently reported that the US Food and Drug Administration was seeking to stop Trent Arsenault from donating his sperm on the basis that he was in the business of manufacturing human cells. This apparently is in contravention of US regulations. While Mr Arsenault has received no payment for his sperm donations, it was his lack of 'sexual intimacy' with any of the recipients that caused him to fall foul of the rules.
The primary concern of the charges against Mr Arsenault (in fact 'his Establishment') is that in failing to screen his sperm for certain agents, he has failed to 'provide adequate protections against the risks of communicable disease transmission'.
