Two sperm banks where a man can have his semen frozen and stored for future use, will open within the next few weeks in New York. Most of the clients are expected to be men planning to have vesectomies[(sic)] who want their sperm available in case they decide later they want to have children. A spokesman for one of the sperm banks said that experiments have been conducted for the past 17 years which indicate that frozen sperm remains alive for about eight years. He said conception is normal and children resulting from such a union are perfectly healthy. During the experimental period, over 400 children were conceived in this manner. Typically, the companies are expected to charge eighty dollars for collecting and freezing the sperm, and eighteen dollars a year thereafter for storage. A fantastic possibility for future birth control, if you have the bread.
