This article implies that the Australian Laws which provide children the right to track down their donor parents when they become 18 is somehow bad because it's making potential donors think twice and that's resulting in a sperm donation shortage. This law safeguards a child's right to know who it's biological parents are. Sorry Nicky, but this one significant fact the entire article fails to discuss, far outweighs your right to access donor sperm whenever it pleases you. Sorry but there are considerations here other than your desire to have a child! So you've paid upwards of $10,000, i guess this could make it feel like you're owed something - but you're not. These laws are not there to help or hinder you - they have nothing whatsoever to do with you but everything to do with the rights of the child.
And to Kim who dismisses the claims Indian women are being exploited by rich Westerners - has she not considered why you have to go to one of the poorest countries on the planet to find women that would call surrogacy "an opportunity".
I hope both Nicky and Kim become mothers some day however their quest to have children should not be at any cost - as then it becomes like any other purely selfish endeavour.

Thanks for posting Nicky. I don't buy magazines anymore.

Cool article, I didn't realise that things were so diabolical here. I wish you all the luck in the world.
