Baby business?? It is becoming a little bit more complicated..

Maybe there are some serious rules missing in the "Baby business" industry..


It is a fact nowadays that more women choose to have babies on their own. As the number of children born through artificial insemination increases, outsize groups of donor siblings are starting to appear.
Children must know their donor’s number and this must become part of their sex education because the possibilities to get in contact with others who were born through donors are growing every day.
