Book description

Reproductive donation is the most contentious area of assisted reproduction. Even within Europe there are wide variations in what is permitted in each country. This multidisciplinary book takes a fresh look at the practices of egg, sperm and embryo donation and surrogacy, bringing together ethical analysis and empirical research. New evidence is offered on aspects of assisted reproduction and the families these create, including non-traditional types. One of the key issues addressed is should children be told of their donor origin? If they do learn the identity of their donor, what kinds of relationships may be forged between families, the donor and other donor sibling families? Should donation involve a gift relationship? Is intra-familial donation too close for comfort? How should we understand the growing trend for 'reproductive tourism'? This lively and informed discussion offers new insights into reproductive donation and the resulting donor families.

'… a fantastic policy textbook that will hopefully make its way to the shelves of campaigners and decision makers alike. It is also great reading for anyone interested in evidence-based approaches to donor conception, and a helpful aid for those considering involvement in reproductive donation as parent, donor or surrogate. Too much information out there is supplied by people with well-hidden agendas, and a book like this can be a powerful tool for negotiating the complex dilemmas parents and donors can face.'
