Note

As many children born of assisted reproductive technologies are reaching adulthood, they are increasingly calling for information about their "donors" - the person(s) who contributed their gametes to enable their conception. The panel will explore whether donor-conceived offspring should have access to information about the donors, where such information should be held, how different jurisdictions are handling these issues, what is happening in this regard in the United States and if it is possible to balance "competing" interests.

This event is sponsored by the O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law.
