Organization of the French Sperm Banks — C.E.C.O.S.
In France, artificial insemination with donor semen (AID) has encountered difficulties in the past for religious and moral reasons. Consequently, the technique had to be practiced in a clandestine manner. AID was performed by only a few private gynecologists using fresh semen obtained from donors. This practice provided only a scant number of donors with limited guarantees regarding the quality of semen and the protection of anonymity.
