A Sperm Donor is Responsible for the Fathering of 15 Children with Rare Genetic Disorders
He never told the women he suffered from an incurable genetic disorder...
A step aside from all the terrible news in the world, Uniic figured it would give readers a bit of a “WTF” moment. A sperm donor is responsible for 15 children. However, he never told them that he suffers from an incurable genetic condition…
James MacDougall had gone the route of private sperm donations even while knowing he suffered from Fragile X syndrome, according to The Sun. The genetic condition leads to naturally low IQ and developmental delay with no cure.
In a bit of defense, I am not sure why you would trust a sperm donor you’ve found on social media… But, I can’t think for everybody else. MacDougall advertised the private donations on various social media platforms as clinics wouldn’t accept him. Nobody would have ever known either, as he initially signed an agreement saying he didn’t want to be in contact with some of the children but then pulled an Uno reverse and took some of the women to court where he asked a judge to give him time with four of the children.
Three of the mothers denied his wishes and one even denied him parental responsibility.
The judge on the case was told of a woman named only as SW who had contacted James MacDougall after seeing his ad. She was given a closely spaced three-page document is highly legalistic language stating he would have no rights over the child and no rights to contact the child. The document also stated that he had Fragile X syndrome. This was stated on page three of the packet and also there was no given explanation.
SW admits she had not read that far into the agreement.
SW says James also visited her children conceived via his sperm over the pandemic stretch. She also says he had made sexual comments to her, rubbed an erection against her, and even showered with the toddler at least twice.
James McDougall has not been seen since an incident in 2020 when he was arrested for attacking SW and leaving her with bruising on the neck and back. The judge found MacDougall was a complex person, with learning difficulties and on the autistic spectrum, with fixed views, concrete thinking, and a profound lack of insight.
