"Donating sperm doesn't harm your health. It will not lead to death in any way."
LUO WENZHI, director of the Guangdong Provincial Population and Family Planning Commission, made the comment through a hotline with listeners of Radio Guangdong on Tuesday.
He said the sperm bank in Guangdong province is in bad need of enough sperm donors throughout the whole year, and he called on healthy males to donate sperm to the program. Responding to the sudden death of a college student after a sperm donation last year in Wuhan, Hubei province, Luo said donating sperm is absolutely safe and will not cause death.
