I’m a physician and donor-conceived person. In fact, my donor-father and I attended the same medical school. I love having a large family, and it’s been a thrill to discover my donor-relatives. Finding my half-sister has filled with me with joy that is hard to describe. However, I have serious concerns regarding the ethics of the assisted reproduction industry and some of the truly disturbing outcomes of years of failure of self-regulation. I have been starting to advocate for reform.
