End of anonymity for donors of gametes donation or an End in Bohemia?

In the Czech Republic yet valid anonymous donors, namely whether the sperm donor or donor eggs. Some European countries, but they go a different route and we may add to them.

"Without anonymity" equals "without donors?"

Adoption of the bill on specific health services would mean the end of donor anonymity. The amendment, however, that the present government disagrees, was designed by six MPs from different political parties. Many specialists in the field of assisted reproduction, however, agree that the new law would also mean the end of the donors in the Czech Republic. The same result had occurred in countries where a similar law applies. Most donors have had in the future, wants a meeting with the stranger who tells them that their child.

Under the new law, the Department had any information about the donor be archived for 80 years and on request registry office would have to give all the information, including the residence. And on this information, an individual who came from donations of gametes and came of age, he had the right.

Why break the anonymity of donors?

Lawmakers want a change in the law to enforce mainly from the following reasons:
Everyone should have the right to know the identity of their parents, even if only because of the medical condition.
There should rather promote natural conception, and if necessary assisted reproduction, and should be encouraged, especially artificial insemination between partners.

Why maintain the anonymity of donors?

Experts on assisted reproduction deputies disagree with the views and indicate the following counts:
People who will have trouble conceiving, they will depart for the service to other countries - Romania, India and Ukraine.
Will be added next to the family member, which can have a catastrophic impact family relationships.
Regarding the right to information about biological parents - in their populations about 5-8% of children whose biological parents are different than is written in the matrix, and not to the consequences of assisted reproduction.
Also, donors have certain rights, and at a time when information may be disclosed, may already have a family of her own and a new, "foreign" child might not be good news.

It is therefore obvious that we should think about who we actually want to help the adoption of the law and whether it is actually a "help". Perhaps not surprisingly, specialists in reproductive medicine are strongly opposed to such a change. The question now is what to say MEPs.
