Soldiers of the Australian forces of elite started to freeze sperm before a possible deployment for a war in Iraq.
This measurement constitutes "a kind of insurance if they would lose their means abroad", explained a doctor : "That already occurred in period of crisis. When the soldiers return healthy and safe, they warn us and one throws sperm ", added Dr. Geoff Driscoll, quoted Sunday by the daily newspaper "Sun-Herald".
Two members of the special forces contacted the bank of sperm of Sydney these two last weeks after having learned that they could be sent in the Gulf, specified doctors.
The Prime Minister John Howard declared Friday that some 150 Australian soldiers probably will be sent in the Gulf these next weeks in preparation to a possible war with Iraq.
Permissions of the special forces were cancelled in forecast of a possible conflict.

Makes sense to me. If they are in danger of damaging their reproductive capacity, then why not have a little insurance.
There was a story in the news in Australia about a woment trying to concieve with her dead partners sperm. Her petition to remove sperm from the body ( which can be viable up to a week after death ) was rejected because it hadn't been stated in her partners will.
I wonder if these SAS soldiers are aware of this and are planning ahead if they are killed.
