 Taxpayers' Cash Being Spent on Porn for Sperm Donors

Taxpayers' money is being spent by the NHS on porn for sperm donors.

According to health think-tank 2020health.org, which campaigns against NHS waste, one in three hospitals with fertility services provide dirty magazines, with some also offering blue movies.


In its survey, seventeen hospitals admitted to buying in porn, with most top-shelf magazines being bought from newsagents.

Two hospitals confessed they bought them directly from publishers, while others said the magazines were donated by staff, patients and visitors, with one hospital saying the material was given by a top consultant.

"We know of no government authorisation that sanctioned this," the Sun quoted the think-tank's director, Julia Manning, as saying.

"The reality of porn today is that it increasingly uses younger girls and is more violent and extreme," she said.

The immorality was slammed as an offence to the three-quarters of NHS staff who are women, with many fearing for their jobs.

"Seventy-seven percent of the NHS workforce is female and they should never have to work in an environment that endorses pornography," she added.

She also pointed out that only 33 out of 92 hospitals in the investigation used porn as a helping hand for donors.

It had earlier been revealed that Liverpool Women's NHS Foundation Trust splashed out 7,500 pounds on computers, flat-screen TVs, a DVD unit and blue movies for hospital sperm donors.
