in Donor egg IVF
In its recent report on donor conception, the Nuffield Council on Bioethics talks about 'information sharing'. That means when and how to tell your child she was donor conceived. It makes some good points. But ethical arguments don't always take account of the real world. Where, in that 200-page paper, does it actually celebrate the wonderful altruism of donors? In the UK, egg and sperm donors face barriers. Their impulse to donate is knocked back by ethical over-thinking and distrustful attitudes.
