Should sperm/egg donors retain their anonymity?

  • Combat shortage of donors

    Donors are purely biological, they are not the real father of the child conceived. Children's rights should only extend to access to the donor's medical history (including physical and psychological ailments). Beyond that, the donor has the right to their own privacy. Donating is typically altruistic in nature, and thus donors should not be saddled with the responsibility of being fathers.

  • Not the donor's responsibility

    The only connection a donor may have between their children is purely genetic. If the donor wants nothing more to do with the offspring, then they should have the choice of remaining anonymous. Presumably, the children produced are raised by people who applied for a donation, and though the application process should have been confirmed to be in a stable situation, capable of giving their child a proper upbringing. If the kid already has the care of parents, what else could it possibly need?

  • Ban Donor Anonymity

    There really shouldn't be any reason as to why I need to explain how this is no small burden to the donor conceived, but here we go. Why should donors biological, sexual, and genetic liberation rank paramount to my needs? The need that I share with some random family in the world?

  • We (the donor concieved) have rights too.

    One thing that makes me extremely mad is how other people try to tell me that i have no right to know where I came from. It's supposedly all about how the donor feels. Very ridiculous. I have a say in this too. I'm just as human as everybody else. Therefore, I have feelings like everybody else. Why should there be laws keeping me from knowing who I am? Consider the morality of this from the offspring's perspective. Should sperm/egg donor anonymity be banned? ABSOLUTELY.
