Who's your daddy? Testing the test tube

Mindy Jacobs, Ottawa Sun, 6/1/2010

"We must have an active public debate over whether it is ethical for the state to support the deliberate conception of children who will never have the chance to be raised by their biological parents," the report by the Institute for American Values says... [T]he study makes some interesting observations about the social and psychological complications that surround donor conception, specifically the use of donor sperm, and the overwhelming human need for a sense of belonging. Young adults conceived through sperm donation experience profound struggles with their origins and identities, the report says, noting that fertility tourism is a booming global trade.
