37-year-old, James MacDougall has done the unthinkable, privately donating sperm to lesbian couples, despite knowing he suffered from an incurable genetic disorder

MacDougall has now fathered 15 children despite knowing he has fragile X syndrome.

So how did he do it?

He advertised his sperm on social media, knowing his condition would stop him from going through a clinic.

Affected individuals usually begin to see the impacts of the genetic condition by age 2.

The bizarre case came to light when Macdougall took the mothers to court demanding access to the children, despite signing documents to say he would remain anonymous.

Macdougall still claims his innocence and denies any wrongdoing. though and says

“I haven’t done anything wrong. I did a good thing by helping these women, I gave them children but people are saying that I was not honest.
