At a time when the world was fighting the Corona virus pandemic, Ari Nagel sought throughout the last period to continue donating sperm, to touch the number of children who were born through his donations, to about 100 children, according to a report by the newspaper, “The Jerusalem Post.”
Nagel, an Israeli who lives in New York and is from an Orthodox Jewish family, does not accept his donation campaigns, as he gives his sperm to families and individuals who are unable to conceive naturally with children, according to the newspaper.
In an interview with Esquire magazine, Nagel said he wanted to help women, especially those in same-sex relationships, at a time when donors suffer from a shortage of sperm around the world.
Sperm donation is a process in which a man donates his sperm to help a woman or a couple have a baby, according to the Mayo Clinic website.
The use of donated sperm is known as third-party procreation.
Nagel confirmed that he remains in contact with the families he helped them procreate, and that he has children from his own marriages, revealing that his mother says that he is a disgrace to the family.
It is noteworthy that sperm donation banks in Israel recorded a significant increase in the number of donors, amid the economic crisis caused by the Corona virus in the country.
And the newspaper “The Times of Israel” reported that hundreds of Israeli men have resorted to donating their sperm to achieve financial income in light of an unprecedented unemployment crisis.
According to data from these banks, which the newspaper quoted from a report by the Israeli Channel 12, the number of donors increased by 300 percent.
