1 sperm donor, 150 brothers and sisters – 09/06/2011

For Your Entertainment (FYE)

Are we re-creating a “virtual” “harem” for an “Elite” of a few Male Donors or is it Nature’s New Darwinian plot to ensure “the survival of the fittest”????? ;+)

It would be interesting to discover the “fittest” sperm donors criteria as seen by the mothers of the 150+ siblings………..;+)

Maybe they keep from publishing those “fittest” criteria to prevent those of us, like myself, to go kill themselves, to give more room to the offsprings of the  ‘fittest”???  ;+)

“Now, there is growing concern among parents, donors and medical experts about potential negative consequences of having so many children fathered by the same donors, including the possibility that genes for rare diseases could be spread more widely through the population. Some experts are even calling attention to the increased odds of accidental incest between half sisters and half brothers, who often live close to one another.”

” “My daughter knows her donor’s number for this very reason,” said the mother of a teenager conceived via sperm donation in California who asked that her name be withheld to protect her daughter’s privacy. “She’s been in school with numerous kids who were born through donors. She’s had crushes on boys who are donor children. It’s become part of sex education” for her. ”

““We have more rules that go into place when you buy a used car than when you buy sperm,” said Debora L. Spar, president of Barnard College and author of “The Baby Business: How Money, Science, and Politics Drive the Commerce of Conception.” “It’s very clear that the dealer can’t sell you a lemon, and there’s information about the history of the car. There are no such rules in the fertility industry right now.” ”

“Unlike other countries, including Britain, France and Sweden, there are no limits in the United States on how many children a sperm donor can father. There are only guidelines issued by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, a professional group that recommend restricting conceptions by individual donors to 25 births per population of 800,000.

No one knows how many children are born in this country each year using sperm donors. Some estimates put the number at between 30,000 and 60,000, perhaps more. Mothers of donor children are asked to report a child’s birth to the sperm bank voluntarily, but just 20 to 40 percent of them do so, said Wendy Kramer, founder of the Donor Sibling Registry.”

 

“Because there is so much secrecy surrounding sperm and egg donations, Ms. Kramer said, it has been difficult for families of children born via sperm donation to step forward with their concerns. Some heterosexual couples never tell a child that he or she is the product of a sperm donation.”

 

” Experts are not certain what it means to a child to discover that he or she is but one of 50 children — or even more. “Experts don’t talk about this when they counsel people dealing with infertility,” Ms. Kramer said. “How do you make connections with so many siblings? What does family mean to these children?” ”
