Law on Register of Sperm Donors Is Being Discussed

Even if the assessors of the health select committee of the German Bundestag principally agreed to the bill regarding setting up a central register for sperm donors during a conference in March, they postulated  changes.

In German legal words it is called „Gesetz zur Regelung des Rechtes auf Kenntnis der Abstammung bei heterologer Verwendung von Samen“ ("Law regulating the right of knowing the ancestry regarding the heterologous usage of semen"). A register for sperm donorst at the "Deutsches Institut für Medizinische Dokumentation und Information" (DIMDI) is designated for this purpose.

All data regarding sperm donors and receipients shall be stored for a period of 110 years. All persons having been procreated from a sperm donation and/or a by an artificial fertilization shall have the right for disclosure of the identity of the donor when they are 16 years of age or older.

The representatives demanded to reduce the age to 14 years. Furthermor all currently present data should be added, embryo donations should be added and private sperm donations should be added as well. To which extent the ascertation of paternit by jurisdiction of the biological father as the genetical father will be included is being discussed.

In a statement the German Medical Association pointed out that a systematic regulation of reproductive techniques by a new Reproductive Medicine Act was long overdue. Furthermor a lot of sociopolitic questions and questions regarding family law are not being dealt with in this bill.
