Yesterday I wrote about the IVF baby in Pune and before I could get around to answer all the comments that it generated, I came across another story in the New York Times “One Sperm Donor, 150 Offspring.”
I just quote a small extract and let my readers read the whole article to get a handle on what troubles me.
“Today there are 150 children, all conceived with sperm from one donor, in this group of half siblings, and more are on the way. “It’s wild when we see them all together — they all look alike,”
Wild? Weird would be more appropriate I would have thought.
My imagination runs wild. Supposing I had been the donor, just imagine, there would now be 150 and more offspring looking like me parading all over the place! A catastrophe of bigger dimension, I can’t visualize.
