    RE: Sperm donors, there’s a great film about that topic (guy fathers 533 kids before actually having a child of his own with his gf) that was released a couple of years ago in Quebec/Canada : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starbuck_(2011_film) . Was a pretty good film, too.

    It would seem easy enough to provide an anonymous coded number to sperm donor recipients so that their offspring could at least compare that (obviously this would require national coordination in a data base of some kind and mom telling the kid how they came to be). But honestly, this could just as easily happen with half siblings without a medical sperm donor (think of the guy in England that has 14 or 16 kids [I’ve lost count] with almost as many different women; not implausible that some of those kids might grow up not knowing who their dad is, or might be told it was someone else).

    Wow. The part about the sex offenders getting around their tracking anklets is really scary. If a lot of people know about this, wouldn’t you think the manufacturers of at least, the government would be doing something by now?
