Artificial insemination with donor semen(AID) has in recent years been de-dramatized and in Denmark at least, it is now accepted by the population as well as by many members of the medical profession as a reasonable possibility in the treatment of childlessness. It is important, therefore, that couples who wish to utilize AID should have a reasonably easy access to this treatment and the greatest possible chances of success. They should also be assured that the semen used, which they are entirely unable to check, is derived from men having physical and mental qualities of an acceptable standard.
