The “full truth” will be revealed, according to a twisted sperm donor who gave samples to lesbian women despite knowing he had an inheritable condition.
According to a court hearing in Derby, James MacDougall, 37, used social media to make private donations to lesbian women who would later bear his children.
According to an exclusive report from the Daily Mail, MacDougall has Fragile X Syndrome, a genetic condition that can cause learning disabilities, facial disfigurement, and cognitive impairment.
He would be unable to donate sperm through an official donation clinic because of this condition.
However, in an interview with the newspaper, MacDougall claimed that by “giving them children,” he had done a good thing.

“I’ve done nothing wrong,” he explained. I did the right thing by assisting these women and providing them with children, but some have accused me of being untrustworthy.
“The truth will be revealed in its entirety.” “I’m enraged and disappointed.”
June MacDougall, his adoptive mother, told the newspaper that he was “kind-hearted but gullible,” despite his protestations of innocence.
“He just wanted to help those people, help those gay women achieve their dreams of becoming parents,” she said.
“As far as we know, he didn’t ask for money to provide that service; he simply did it.”
MacDougall’s identity was only revealed after he filed a lawsuit in Family Court to gain custody of four of the children born as a result of these arrangements.

Regrettably, some of his children have already begun to show symptoms of the disease.
After contacting MacDougall through an advertisement, a 25-year-old woman named SW had two children, now aged two and three, from him, with her firstborn currently non-verbal and exhibiting “challenging” behavior.
The woman had trouble reading a complicated legal contract she signed for him, according to the court, and did not look at the section where he mentioned Fragile X without explaining the condition.
She contacted him soon after the baby’s birth, and after several visits, he moved into her home during the first national lockdown in early 2020, only to be asked to leave in June 2020.
He allegedly made sexual remarks to the mother and showered with the child at least twice during his stay at the house.
MacDougall was denied access to their children, and the judge took the unusual step of publicly naming him to prevent other women from using him as a sperm donor.
For the next three years, he was also barred from making any court applications.
