The Complications of Donor Assisted Reproduction Anonymity

Jonada Zyberaj, Ergysa Ikonomi


Assisted reproduction methods are becoming ever-present for couples who can’t conceive a baby in a natural reproduction way. More than 5 million babies have been born worldwide since the first IVF baby was born in 1978. As medical techniques are developing in this area legislation is still trying to legitimate issues related to artificial reproduction techniques. Art in many countries relies on the principle of anonymity of donors, but with the increasing prevalence of these techniques the use of this principle led to the emergence of some legal issues as the higher interest of the child to know its origin and its genes and the legal complications in term of marriage capacity.This paper aims to treat the relationship between the right to remain an anonymous donor versus the benefits of the disclosure of the donor identity.In the discussion on the anonymity of donors vs the disclosure of their identity a crucial topic is the procedure that should be implemented to manage the personal data of the donors in order to guarantee donor’s rights and place him in a comfortable position away from harassments.
