Equally eye-catching: the headline on the press release, issued by the Institute for American Values, or IAV: "Pathbreaking Study Finds Adults Conceived Through Sperm Donation Suffer Substantial Harm." Data was culled from an online survey of 1,687 people, roughly one-third of whom said they either knew that they were sperm-donor offspring or suspected as much.
