Children Concieved Via Assisted Reproduction Are Well-Adjusted

"Children born as a result of assisted reproduction technologies are generally well adjusted, survey results suggest. However, children who lack a genetic link to one of the parents -- by reason of donor insemination or egg donation -- are unlikely to be told of the circumstances of their birth. On the other hand, most children born by in vitro fertilization (IVF) using egg and sperm from their actual parents are told. Dr. Susan Golombok, from the University of Cambridge, UK and associates previously reported that when children were approximately 4-1/2 years old, egg donation was associated with greater parental psychological well-being compared with donor insemination, IVF and adoption -- and none of the children exhibited psychological problems."
