Donor Passes Disease onto 5 Donor Conceived Michigan Children

To read the full NY Times article on this story link above to this blog's Annex.

It's about time that the media begin addressing this side of the DC issue. Without such stories coming to light the public will never support efforts to better regulate this industry.

It is noted in the article that while donors are routinely screened for several different diseases the one that these children contracted is extremely rare and was not tested for. Somehow that did not make me feel better. The conclusion that the donor was the source resulted from a review of the children's genes and htat of the mothers.
