Susan Golombok, overstepping the line...

(***Got bias? According to "Professor" Susan Golombok, the only problem with so called 'donor' conception is stigmatisation from outside influences. In other words, the disenfranchised grief many 'donor' conceived feel is only a result of the nature of importance that society puts on genetic relationships. Really?? No. This is where we draw the line.***) "Stigmatisation, not structure, causes problems for children in ‘non-traditional’ families ‘Quality of relationships matters most to the well-being of families’ It is stigmatisation outside the family, rather than relationships within it, that creates difficulties for children in new family forms, says Professor Susan Golombok of the Centre for Family Research within the University of Cambridge."
