Abstract

In this paper we consider the recording of information in donor conception
and access to this information by donor-conceived people. While our preference
is for a formalised record (register) that mandates disclosure of donor
identity, where the necessary political support for such a system does not
exist then we suggest that a voluntary contact register could help to meet
the needs and rights of donor-conceived people and to respect the dignity of
others directly involved in donor conception and that counselling values and
principles should underpin the operation of these registers
