William Gerber and his wife have always planned on having children The only problem is he is currently in jail with a 100-year-to-life sentence After being incarcerated Mr Gerber and his wifes desire to have children only grew stronger Now that William Gerber will never be able to come home again he wants to FedEx his sperm to his wife for artificial insemination This is allowed in some prisons but not all The prison warden at William Gerbers prison will not let him send his semen so he has filed a lawsuit against the prison He says that the prison is depriving him of rights under the due process clause of the constitution Grossman Everyone has fundamental privacy rights such as sexual activity marriage and raising a family The question is do these rights still stand when a person is sent to jail But more importantly does the right to procreation the right to produce offspring extend to prisoners All prisoners have a right to procreation as long as it does not interfere with their sentence Should prisoners have this right If so do both male and female prisoners have this right Every man and woman has a right to procreate under normal circumstances but it is not specified whether or not prisoners have this right Some prisons do allow men to send their sperm to their wives for artificial insemination but there is nothing written saying that prisoners have to be allowed to do this It is very simple for a male prisoner to send his semen from jail It does not require the prisoner to have any visits with a physician and he does not even have to leave the prison There are many prisons that are allowing men to send their semen to their wives or significant others right now but not all prisons are allowing this Some prisons just feel like it has no real importance while others simply make excuses
