Another Story On Unnatural Conception.

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. β€œIt’s wild when we see them all together β€” 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.
