Netflix Documentary Shows the Dangers of Serial Sperm Sale

Reproductive technologies, such as making babies with supplied sperm that come with no relational strings, are morally problematic because they sideline the natural right children have to a mother and father in favor of adults’ selfish desires.

Donor-conceived children often experience pain when they are distanced from their biological roots. Gametes suppliers, too, suffer emotionally once they realize they will likely never develop a fatherly relationship with their flesh and blood.

One thing the show fails to explore is that Meijer wasn’t the only person victimizing the thousands of fatherless children he created. The women who employed a system that intentionally distances offspring from their biological roots put their children at a disadvantage from conception.

It's an excellent documentary, and a very disturbing subject. The main horror belongs to families that will need to spend the next three generations doing gene mapping to make sure that they don't mate with siblings, or cousins in the next two generations. It's a nightmare, and Meijer may not be done yet.
