Artificial Insemination

Also, after quoting the above statement of the Guardian, the following comment was made in another letter: In view of this, the House of Justice has stated that it would not be proper for a Bahá’í to donate semen to a hospital for the artificial insemination of a woman other than his wife.
(Universal House of Justice, Lights of Guidance, p. 288)


The beloved Guardian, in a letter written on his behalf to an individual believer who enquired on the same subject, said “...there is nothing in our teachings about this, therefore there is no objection to having a baby by means of artificial insemination as long as your husband is the father of it. “Artificial insemination is, therefore, permissible to a Bahá’í wife provided her husband is the donor.”
