Children of sperm and egg donors

Duration: 15:09

Children conceived with donated sperm or eggs after 2005 will be able to trace their biological parents once they reach the age of 18. But what if they have never even been told that one parent was a donor? Jenni asks Anthony Douglas, Chief Executive of CAFCASS, and Dr Evan Harris, Liberal Democrat MP, whether parents should be obligated to disclose their child’s origins.
