You can vote for this option on Uservoice https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-desktop-feature-requests/suggestions/32146360--paste-on-selected-artboards

You may also find this code helpful. Of course here you will have to enter the artboard numbers manually. The script itself will copy the selected objects to the clipboard.
