Wilson's disease is rare and recessive so the mothers of the children would have to be carriers, as well as the sperm donor, making it harsh to blame him alone. Since the frequency of the allele is 0.428% amongst US Caucasians and the chance of two carriers having an affected child is 1 in 4, the chance of two random sperm recipients both being carriers and having a child with Wilson's disease is therefore very small (around 1 in 873,000).
