Why Wouldn’t You Tell?\ud Telling donor-conceived children about their conception

By Eric Blyth and Irene Ryll

Abstract

Research studies show that while an increasing\ud number of parents of children conceived as a result\ud of donor conception procedures appear to be telling\ud - or planning to tell - their child about their conception\ud (see Golombok et al., 2004; Brewaeys et al.,\ud 2005 for an overview), a large proportion of parents\ud choose not to do so. Since the overwhelming majority\ud of parents normally support truth-telling within\ud their families, the decision to conceal the nature of\ud the child’s conception - and deception to maintain\ud its concealment - requires explanation
