Canada is working to create a national sperm donor registry, according to the London Free Press. For now, donors will be allowed to remain anonymous:
Sweden was the first country in 1986 to pass a law requiring donor information be collected and the identity provided to children. The U.K. passed a similar law in 2005.
Canada is now developing a national registry to collect health information on sperm donors. When it’s operating, offspring will be able to contact the registry for non-identifying information. But identifying information won’t be released without the donor’s consent, Newton said. “Anonymity is still an option.”
Rob maintains children should be able to know who their father is. “It’s a human right to know where the hell you came from.”
