Is Sperm Donation Biblical

As a Christian minister, student of the Bible, and a medical professional, I see nothing wrong with sperm donation by Christian men to Christian couples as long as it is artificial donor insemination, and no genital contact or nudity take place. If you are for it or against-why?

Obewan: Also, we must consider OT Israel customs were approximately 1,000 years prior to God's giving of His law to Moses (Lev. 18) concerning human sexual relations. Gen. 38 clearly shows the giving "in marriage" of a brother's widowed wife to one of his other brothers. So, since they were married there was no act of adultery.

Very interesting point Obewan. It seems under those circumstances it wasn't considered adultery either.

Ross: I suspect inseminating a living man's wife with another man's sperm would indeed be considered adultery (extramarital sex). True, there's no genital contact, but nonetheless there is "physical contact (union)" of the man's sperm with the woman's ovaries -- therefore a "physical joining of the two sexes", i.e., one man's wife with "another man" .

I think it's okay for a deceased husband's banked sperm to be inseminated into his widow provided she's not remarried. In cases where the husband is infertile, I think the couple should seriously consider adopting.

It is very wrong to have your wife get pregnant by another man.

This is the only reason given in the bible for an abortion.

Scripture and verse if youplease, as I know of NO Scriptural for supporting abortion. Artificial insemination is not Biblical either, as it is a form of man playing "God." If we would rely on God for the things we have become so self-reliant, we wouldn't be sbmitting to these things. Remember what happened when Abram and Sarai tried to help God with His promise of a seed to them?

Wrong, francis.

There's NOTHING in the Bible that says this, and I defy you to show it.

a bit amusing to see modern day gentile christians use so much REASONING to OVERRIDE the actual sin with silly claims of no nudity or genital contact LOL

to have another mans sperm "medically" placed in a married womens womb for the purpose of having a baby that is not her spouses could only be JUSTIFIED by the reasoning of human minds and the GODS of medical science that will do anything to SELL there wares

True Christian married women would never place themselves in a situation that would have another mans sperm inside of her - whether by physical or man-made medical means

I believe that: sperm and egg donations are playing god

I must confess that I don't know the Full Story behind just WHY some couples are unable to conceive a baby naturally. Only the couples themselves, and GOD, really know the WHY part here.

If the reason for their infertility is SIN, then I would say that this playing god is likewise SIN.

On the other side of the coin, some couples might have medical reasons that are NOT the result of any sinful behavior. In these cases, I see no reason why this playing god would be wrong.

Still, whenever possible, using natural family planning, and conception, is the BEST option. GOD gives us the ability to choose to do things HIS way.

How is donor sperm collected, Ross?
---Cluny on 12/4/10


Everthing man does today is against nature. Man is playing God through the use of the laboratory. Man depends too much on today's medical and technological miracles to achieve their selfish desires instead of having faith in God's miracles.

In Old Testament Israel, sperm donation was the law for wives who lost their husbands. The brother of the husband who died did the donation and there even was contact.

I'm neither for or against it, only God can provide the life force that makes the life and so the physical part is just stuff until God does his work.
