My daddy’s name is Donor

The NZ Herald article read “Serial sperm donor Kyle Gordy will soon have 58 kids – and is coming to NZ”. The article was a good example of everything that can go wrong with sperm donation. Despite the greatest intentions of the lawmakers, there’s no mandate that a donor is to be involved – or will want to be involved – in the child’s life. It may still effectively be anonymous, except for the disclosure of some of their genetic origin. But children have a deep longing to know who they belong to, where they come from, and who they look like. It’s time we put their rights front and center in this discussion.
