Bill would end anonymity of future sperm donors

I saw this coming, thank you state of Virginia. I knew that with all those articles in the Washington DC papers in the last few months something like this was bound to happen.

Katrina Clark who is the impetus behind the bill in the Virginia legislature published an Op-Ed in the Washington Post Sunday Outlook section in December, 2006. I just knew this was going to become fodder for the Right-Wing - and sure enough, here it is it. She is an angry 18 year-old who feels ripped off because she will never know her father. And now she is being used to kick-off what might become a nasty, nasty political battle in the states and beyond.

I am glad that I found a new donor. Very troubling.

Gah! Troubling indeed. These legislators are probably the same people who want legislation to prevent compensations being paid for egg donors, too.
