National Registry for Sperm Donors
Interview: Randi Hutter Epstein, MD, author and journalist
Currently, because there’s no national registry for sperm donors, there’s no way to discover babies born from the same donor.
And because there’s no tracking system in place, it's not possible to find children who might have inherited a genetic disease from one of those donors.
Our next guest, Randi Hutter Epstein, MD, believes it’s time to remedy this situation. Dr. Hutter Epstein is an author and medical journalist who specializes in this area. She's written a book called Get Me Out: A History of Childbirth from the Garden of Eden to the Sperm Bank.
