In I wish I was making this up news, the New York Times ran an article about a sperm donor that is the biological father for potentially more than 150 people.
I have about 150 snarky remarks to make about that, but I’d like to think I could be mature enough to look at this objectively as a pretty thorny ethical issue. And I sort of can.
I kind of wish they’d have actually interviewed some of the offspring, but the article never goes there. It could have been about a 2500 word piece that got crammed into 700 words or so, and thus it just barely scratches the surface of the nuttiness this issue can spiral into.
But man, 150 kids. That guy wasn’t Catholic, I’ll tell you that much.
