The Sperm Show goes on air

New Dutch commercial television channel Talpa is planning to broadcast a show called "I want your child and nothing else" featuring a single woman who gets to choose a sperm donor to father her child.

The program is initially a one-off that will be aired on August 23 with viewers allowed to vote on whether it should stay on the air, the Algemeen Dagblad daily reported on Wednesday.

The idea for the "Spermshow", as Dutch media are calling it, was already launched once in 2001 but caused a storm of protest in the Netherlands even leading to questions in parliament.
