Review
... an important contribution to contemporary debates on assisted conception services providing unique perspectives from donors, parents of donor-conceived children and donor-conceived people. It should be recommended to anyone contemplating becoming a donor or undergoing assisted conception services involving donated gametes... this book should [also] be compulsory reading for all those who provide donor conception services, regulators of donor conception services and legislators. — from the Foreword by Eric Blyth
