In brief: Yes
Lou gehrig's affects motor neurons, and therefore, involves strength and ability to breath and swallow, but does not cause sterility, and thus, sperm and eggs are not afflicted.

That is the problem because they usually reproduce, and possibly pass it on, before they even know they have it.
