“I think too often we’ve seen our job as simply to help someone achieve a pregnancy rather than looking at what happens to the child, the welfare of the child, what are the needs of the child. Those are issues we haven’t addressed properly.”
— Dr. Charles Sims, the medical director of California Cryobank
A fascinating podcast by “choice mom” Mikki Morrissette about the gamete donor registry proposed last March by three leading sperm banks. I’ve been working on a piece for Reason about the registry and the possibility of self-regulation. Dr. Sims (whom I interviewed) touches on several of the themes I discuss in the article. Well worth a listen!
