sperm bank New York, Jun 23 (THAINDIAN NEWS) BeautifulPeople.com has launched a controversial virtual sperm bank. According to Sky News, they have launched the egg and sperm bank for people who want beautiful children.

BeautifulPeople.com has always opened its doors and membership to people who are beautiful. However they have been deluged with demands for the sperm and eggs of the pretty people, so they had no option but to give in to popular demand and create a virtual egg and sperm bank. However they are facing a lot of ridicule and criticism from a number of quarters for this step.

The founder of the website Robert Hintze said that, “Initially, we hesitated to widen the offering to non-beautiful people. But everyone — including ugly people — would like to bring good looking children into the world, and we can’t be selfish with our attractive gene pool.”

The owners of the website also added that they think that every parent would want to have a pretty child, if they had the choice, hence they implemented the idea. However the idea is not without its critics. Dr. David King who belongs to the watchdog group Human Genetics Alert says that this idea is “dangerous for our society.”
