Over the past few months, the charity that publishes BioNews - the Progress Educational Trust (PET) - has been running a Wellcome Trust supported project about donor conception entitled 'When It Takes More Than Two'.
You may have read about the three events that formed the first part of the project, and which considered donor conception from the perspective of the donor, recipient and donor-conceived person, in BioNews. You can find links to synopses of these events - plus case studies, a heritability factsheet, a glossary of terms and PET's first ever podcast! - here.
The next stage of the project is an online poll, and BioNews readers, this is your chance to participate. The poll takes only a few minutes to complete.
The questions that make up this short poll were all suggested by audience members as the project's public events. These audiences were very mixed, and included people who were immersed in subject of donor conception for personal reasons (for example, parents seeking reassurance that they were doing the 'right' thing by their donor-conceived children), people working in fertility clinics or researching the subject in academia, and some people who were completely new to donor conception issues. We have tried to select questions which reflect that diversity.
Please complete the poll here. (Warning: some of the poll questions may get you hot under the collar!) The results will be published in a future edition of BioNews.
