    wants to know and that the effect of disclosure upon the donor must be taken into account However the decision stated that the right of children to know the identity of their fathers normally outweighs the donors right to privacy The case was brought by sisters aged 12 and 17 who had been denied access to their sperm donor father s identity Their parents had waived a right to access at the time of conception The status quo of German legislation was that children can only access this information when they are 16 However the Supreme Court said that children begin to ask questions about their origins as early as kindergarten Since the 1970s an estimated 100 000 children have been born from sperm donation in Germany MORE ON THESE TOPICS Germany sperm donation This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you teach at a university we ask that your department make a donation Commercial media must contact us for permission and fees Some articles on this site are published under different terms

    and more common In some countries such as the United Kingdom children can access donor information once they turn 18 This is not the case in the US but laws could change Programs should make it clear to donors that they cannot give guarantees regarding immunity from future contact by offspring the ASRM says Perhaps as a consequence it offers no firm recommendations which are binding on its members Donors and programs must recognize that they have a unique and ongoing moral relationship with each other as well as with the recipients and their children and this obligation does not end with the procurement of gametes Evolving medical technology laws and social standards will require reevaluation of these relationships throughout the lifetime of the parties involved MORE ON THESE TOPICS egg donation gamete donation sperm donation This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you teach at a university we ask that your department make a donation Commercial media must contact us for permission and fees Some articles on this site are published under

    been a frequent donor at the sperm bank as well as preparing labelling and shipping samples between 1988 and 1993 Obviously his sperm had been mistakenly or deliberately switched before the artificial insemination A University committee has studied the incident and released a report late last month It concluded that an apology was warranted but that the most ethical policy was not to notify other clients of the fertility clinic during the time when Lippert was employed The Branums described this as a cursory biased and incomplete investigation The review was complicated by the fact that the clinic was not actually owned by the University It was a private company Reproductive Medical Technologies Inc which worked closely with it This company was wound up in 1997 Many records were later destroyed So it is unclear whether the clinic had known of Lippert s criminal background or why he left the job The Branums want the University to notify every patient who used a clinic sperm donor during the years that Lippert worked there We believe the knowledge of biological heritage is essential to avoid half siblings who may be living in the same communities potentially engaging in romantic relationships as well as for family medical history they say on a website But the University s report says that notifying families is unethical The justification for this recommendation is that the risk of having been victimized by Mr Lippert might be very low the burdens of this information are likely to outweigh the benefits to families and the challenges of accurately identifying and informing hundreds of couples after two to three decades are enormous The report also said that the University should not release Lippert s donor number as that would be of no benefit to couples and would be a
