Essai sur le don de gamètes

Abstract : An Essay on Gamete Donation. The question of lifting the anonymity of donors in medically assisted procreation procedures, involving artificial insemination with sperm donation or fertilisation of an oocyte donated by a third party, is at present the subject of heated debate in France. It is rooted in a train of thought underpinned by children trying to trace their paternal or maternal filiation and aims at making this easier, thereby promoting the child’s ‘right’ to gain knowledge of their own origins. Elective filiations such as these refuel the nature/nurture debate and the representations they go hand in hand with within the framework of reproductive medicine. Technical possibilities sometimes seem to far outdo the psychic capacity to cope with the consequences of infertility.
