Freezing sperm at 18
The fact that parenthood is postponed increasingly more time has led the British Dr. Kevin Smith to state that men should have their sperm frozen at 18 years of age for use at a later date, with age the chances of having a child with certain disorders increases.
According to him, this measure should be seen as normal, and would have a positive impact on future generations of children.
However, expert voices, such as the chairman of the British Fertility Society, Adam Balen, responded that this would be a very artificial approach to procreation. Also it creates a false sense of security, because this technology does not provide many guarantees. According to Professor Balen, rather than advising men and women to freeze their sperm or eggs, we should change the current philosophy of society and encourage them to have children at a younger age.
