Popular Sperm Donors Raise Concerns, With the number of children born by artificial insemination on the rise, many young people are discovering that they have several dozen or even half-brothers from around the world. The New York Times has reported the case of a sperm donor who fathered 150 children.
As more women decide to have children on their own, the demand for sperm donors has increased. But Americans are concerned about the consequences of having many children fathered by the same man.
According to The New York Times, the son of a donor who has found 150 half-brothers: they were all children of the same donor.
The main concern raised by this trend is that the genes for rare diseases now spread more quickly in the population. Experts are also concerned that accidental incest can occur among children fathered by the same donor.
Doctors and parents are pushing for the fertility industry to have more regulations.
The number of children they have spawned surprises even sperm donors. Some donors say they have so many children from a donor is unfair to children and their families.
Critics say fertility clinics and sperm banks are earning huge profits by allowing many children to be conceived with donor sperm popular. The idea of?? About 150 children with the same genetic father accumulated in similar social circles and can be relatively close to sounding alarms.
There are lawyers who believe that legal limits should be placed on the number of children in a clinic can be produced from the same donor’s sperm. Proponents of the sperm donor laws and regulations say that donors are protected by an anonymity that seems eerily familiar to the early days of the Internet when users signed with pseudonyms, fictitious public.
The thought of 150 children fathered by a single source can be overwhelming. Hard to believe that a sperm donor, despite the impersonal process, clinicians involved, feels no moral responsibility and ethics or concern for children it has spawned.
Many parents are calling for stricter regulation for the children of donors can learn more about their donors, and the number of children per donor may be limited.
