The adoption and acceptance of assisted reproduction techniques raises ethical questions linked to the meaning of paternity, the concept of the family, the process by which our personal and cultural identity is formed, and the right to anonymity and privacy. All of these issues affect not only parents and children, but also health professionals, social service professionals and legal practitioners and, indeed, society as a whole.
