International Journal of Public Law and Policy (IJPLAP), Vol. 8, No. 3/4, 2022

Abstract: The study investigates the features of donation of female and male reproductive cells. Based on the analysis of the legislation of different countries, it is concluded that there is both anonymous and non-anonymous gamete donation. The author points out the issue of correlation between the right to secrecy of donation and the right of children born using in vitro fertilisation methods to information about their origin. In the course of the study dialectical, Aristotelian, comparative-legal, and modelling methods were used. It is concluded that the gamete donation agreement refers to agreements in the field of medical activity since it includes both works on the extraction of germ cells and services to meet the personal needs of the donor. In addition, the study clarifies the legal nature of commercial sperm donation, which is close to the purchase and sale relations.
