American Philanthropic, 2011
Paper: 978-1-931764-26-1


My Daddy's Name Is Donor reveals stunning findings about the lives of adult offspring of sperm donation, one of the most common reproductive technologies and one that has been practiced widely in the United States and around the world for decades.  Based on first-ever representative, comparative study of adults conceived via sperm donation, it discusses how they struggle with the implications of their conception and how they fare worse than their peers raised by biological parents on important outcomes such as depression, delinquency, and substance abuse.  My Daddy's Name Is Donor aims to launch an international debate on ethics, meaning, and practice of donor conception.
