Medical Tourism: A New Twist

I must confess to being a bit apprehensive about this post. We've touched on IVF in the past, as it relates (or not) to risk. And we've discussed medical tourism, as well.
Remember the old Reese's Cup commercials? "You got chocolate in my peanut butter! "No, you got peanut butter in my chocolate!"
That's right, English lasses are trading in their scones for "a Danish." (Or maybe, a Dane). Turns out, the Brits have all but outlawed anonymous sperm donations, which has caused their supply to, um, dry up. Stoking the flames is the fact that a sample of less than half a milliliter (less than a teaspoon) can fetch as much as $32.
Different strokes, I guess.
