The Hustle, a tech company newsletter, covers the Quartz’ story about Canada’s need for American sperm and blood plasma in “Canada needs more semen.”
While there’s not much information on the reasoning behind it, Jaworski speculates it to be due to “outdated ethical concerns,” and from an economical standpoint, it’s viewed as a “repugnant market” (falling into the same category as sex work).
According to Canadian law, anyone caught buying sperm is liable to a fine of up to $250k and/or up to 5 years in prison. Which is a pretty unchill rule from a country so seemingly chill. Where you at, Trudeau?
