My Daddy's Name is Donor

Host Michel Martin, NPR, 8/16/2010

Sperm donation and artificial insemination has become a billion-dollar industry in recent years and three summer flicks - The Kids are All Right, Switch and The Back-up Plan - feature women who conceived their children through anonymous donors. Three women discuss the increasingly popular and controversial method of conception: Wendy Kramer, founder of an online network where offspring and their sperm donors can connect; Elizabeth Marquardt, author of the study "My Daddy's Name is Donor" and Alana Stewart, who is trying to find her sperm donor father.
