Reader’s Comment of the Day: Don’t give away your children


In response to Elizabeth Howard: As a donor-conceived adult, I would like to know my real father, Tricia wrote:

Thank you for writing this piece. This is a painful issue. I have never understood how we have become so cavalier about birth rights. I know of a friend’s daughter who gave away eggs so that she could afford IVF treatment. It appalled me then and it does so now. You are giving away your children. Voices like yours are very important to change people’s perceptions. 

I despise surrogacy, which makes a child motherless and I despise sperm donation because it makes a child fatherless. Both rob children of their heritage and we know from the experience of adopted children how important this is.

If you appreciated this article, perhaps you might consider making a donation to The Conservative Woman. Unlike most other websites, we receive no independent funding. Our editors are unpaid and work entirely voluntarily as do the majority of our contributors but there are inevitable costs associated with running a website. We depend on our readers to help us, either with regular or one-off payments. You can donate here. Thank you.
