Why are Some US Sperm Banks Hiding Information?

By admin on September 01, 2010

From another Fairfax Cryobank donor:
“I was a sperm donor at Fairfax Cryobank (the Genetics and IVF Institute) in Fairfax, Virginia, for nearly two years. I’ve made contact with them a number of times over the years (last time in 2000) asking them to make my personal contact information available to anyone who was interested in learning that I was their donor. They told me they have a strict privacy policy and that even if I waived my rights to privacy, they were still keeping all files private. I’ve made any number of inquires requesting that my “private” file be opened, but they have refused and have been unwilling to even provide me with my donor number. VERY frustrating. The doctor I had previously made contact with will no longer take my calls nor respond to my written requests. I would love to make contact with any biological offspring or parents of biological offspring who, for whatever reasons, may be searching for me or would be interested in making contact with me.”
