Creating a Family Radio Show

New Blog Post: Perspectives in Gamete Donation 

A follow up to the Active "How Old Should an Egg Donor Be?" Post

As some of you may be aware, Dr. Sweet recently published a blog titled, "How old should a woman be to donate her eggs: An ethical debate." Comments came in from all over and from a variety of perspectives - more than 200, in fact! While we were excited to host the discussion, some of the comments were inflammatory and pulled the discussion a bit off track.


solutions As a result of the somewhat heated discussion, Dr. Sweet decided to publish a follow up post titled, "Compassion, Understanding and Respect are Desperately Needed While We Discuss Three Important Perspectives on Gamete Donation." Just published this week, it addresses the perspectives of the donor, the recipient and ultimately the offspring, highlighting what he believes needs to be done to address some of the difficult issues we find in egg, sperm and embryo donation procedures. This is a highly sensitive topic and one that deserves compassionate attention. We encourage you to visit the blog, review the post and offer your feedback. Remember, we're all working towards the same goal - family building. Dr. Sweet encourages all to "play well in the sandbox with each other," so let's have an open, healthy discussion as we work together towards positive solutions.
