Its on the radio that in England they are trying to introduce laws that men who donate their sperm could get a call from a son/daughter and look for financial support,later in life?
what are your views on this?
Are all donatators records kept a secret here?is it law or is it the wishes of the donatators themselves
I think it would turn a lot of men off donating and ruin the only chance some women have for being a mother. I think it should be an option for the men if they ever want to be traced or not, but I don't think they should be forced into becoming 'fathers' if they don't want to.
Having said that though, I'd hate to be in the position of a sperm donor child who had no way of finding out who their dad was.
It's a very emotive and difficult situation.
Think its only right that a child should be able to get a medical history etc. but there should be no financial obligation.
medical history, perhaps, but def not financial support, dont think direct contact should be allowed either, no unless secifically requested by donorfather
I thought that it was the whole point of donating it in the first place that the father will always be unknown,he donates to help couples not to father another offspring.
