Dear friends at REDLARA:
In order to encourage a deeper understanding on Bioethics, and promote a debate about diverse Bioethical Issues concerning Assisted Reproduction, we would like to invite you to take part in this FORUM, expressing your ideas, experiences and opinions.
This space, open to ideas exchange, is intended to enlarge our formation in Bioethics, which in turn will contribute to stimulate programs of Bioethics information and knowledge diffusion in our communities: this will help patients and legislators to take better informed decisions in the genuine pursuit of their own well-being, and the better for all.

SBioethics Symposium held in Buenos Aires, supported by RED

Anonimato de los donantes y Derecho a la identidad
Although the donor anonymity was the norm in medical practice widespread in Gamete Donation , the trend of the current policies are leading to a stance in favor of disclosure of information about the nature of their design to those born by donated gametes .

Increasingly there are more people in favor of open donation . This new attitude has emerged not only in the associations of trade professionals , children, parents receivers , patient associations , as well as some donors .

This attitude , which arose from their own families (both the children and parents receptors ) , is now accompanied by changes in various laws, professional associations , patient associations and even by many of the donors themselves .

 The recommendation of the majority of mental health professionals is to tell the truth to the children from small , based on scientifically proven evidence that there are benefits to family well-being and the psychological development of a child , and is based on the quality of the relationship with their parents and the possibility to build their identity knowing its origin and genetic identity . Also, this is a right that is guaranteed by the Convention of Human Rights of Children .

Patients are autonomous in their decisions , and should be able to decide what is good for themselves . Also, born usually want to know about their way of design and social history , family and medical history of the donor , is to consolidate its identity as themes just for curiosity .

There are some organized groups in favor of open donation , to meet children genetically related to each other and also donors who are willing and agree to establish contact :
 
• Donor Conception Network www.dcnetwork.org

• Donor Conception Support Group www.dcsg.org

• Donor Sibling Registry www.donorsiblingregistry.com

Check out these links and tell us your opinion.

If the trend is opening , it is necessary that the centers keep records Donor those descendants that want or need , laws that protect the right to identity and more scientific guidelines accepted and used by professionals Reproductive Medicine .
