The ministry said finest a married lady who needs a sperm donation needs permission from her husband, who would possibly maybe maybe additionally in every other case unwittingly bring up a baby that is now now not his possess.
In other words, single ladies folk in Korea can turn out to be pregnant from donor eggs or sperm so long as no laws are broken that ban financial incentives or favors for donors.
