Yes: As long as both of you do not have rare, "recessive gene" illnesses, using a second cousin as a sperm donor is acceptable in terms of genetic risk. These days, genetic counselors can help you determine if you share certain genes which might result in an illness in a baby.

Does it matter who I choose as a sperm donor? Ie: ex husband, friend...Are there any legal issues regarding such?

Your choice: Sperm banks list characteristics such as health, education, racial aspects, etc. Your personal choice of a donor, if you are doing it yourself is no different than a dating relationship. But you can choose based upon your desired characteristics. The only legal issue relates to privacy, the claim of the donor on the child, the rights of the child. You can sign exclusion agreements for this. ...Read more
