ABC 20/20 news show interviews Dr. Turek about his invention that can select usable live sperm from among a population of nonmoving sperm to use with assisted reproduction. This television interview is based on what is now a very famous case of a prior sperm retrieval from a man after his death. The family wanting the child had seen Dr. Turek on another television interview talking about his invention and they contacted him to see if he could them help as well. The child conceived through Dr. Turek’s help is one of the first babies ever born in the world with the use of postmortem sperm.
