Free text The autor of this article thinks that children conceived through donor insemination should be told the truth about their origin as well as adopted children. According to her, many of the same principles that apply to talking with adopted children (i.e. age-appropriate sharing of information, honesty and conveyance of positive messages about how the family was created) also apply to children conceived with donor assistance or surrogacy.
