The International Network of Donor Conception Organizations

In October of 2008, a meeting in Toronto brought together the
leaders of several worldwide organizations who actively work to
educate and support the donor conceived, parents-to-be, parents of
donor conceived people and egg and sperm donors worldwide. As a
result, this new network was formed.

All involved organizations support the following objectives:

1. End donor anonymity.

2. Track all recipients, donors and births and safeguard all
records in a central, government data bank indefinitely. Information
to be accessible by all involved families.

3. Mandate reporting of donor conceived live births from each donor.

4. Limit the number of births conceived with the sperm or eggs
from any given donor

5. Require donors to regularly update their family medical
history. Medical information to be included in donor data bank.

6. .Mandate genetic testing for donors and include genetic
information in donor bank.

7. Push our respective governments to inquire into followup health
histories of egg donors.

8. Require mandatory third party counseling for all prospective
donors and parents.

9. Require legal and financial protection for anonymous donors so
that they may feel safe to come forward.
