Feds Issue Warning to Unconventional Sperm Donor

Federal officials have issued a warning to a California man who has been donating cups of his sperm to women who want kids.

Trent Arsenault says he's been donating sperm for five years to women he meets on the Internet.

He says he got three women pregnant last month, a record for the 36-year-old Fremont father of 14 -- and counting.

Arsenault says he considered donating through sperm banks, which offer money and donor anonymity.

But he decided to give it away in sterile cups so he could meet the future parents.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has now told Arsenault he's facing a $100,000 fine or up to a year in prison for ignoring federal regulations requiring blood tests to screen for communicable diseases.
