IVF and donor conception

Filed under: Child Support,General — JohnPotter @ 9:21 am Mon 4th September 2006

Has anyone got any info in response to the following enquiry from a student?

Hi there,

I was just browsing around on your interesting looking site for the men’s perspective on IVF and donor conception. This seems to be a bit of an under represented opinion in mainstream media, so if you know of any good NZ websites which cover this issue, I would love to know about them.

Just in case you are wondering, I am a student, trying to write an essay which encompasses all perspectives on the issue – I’m just having trouble finding info from all perspectives!

Cheers for your help,

  3. Males are prey.
    As no Law Governing Conception exists.
    In western nations, it’s like the Wild West.

    So in behaviour how have men responded.
    Certainly males pressure females to have abortions.
    Even threatening.
    Lawlessness, a result.

    Why then would males, want the abortion.
    Such a drastic action, to end a life.
    He must fear, the outcomes.
    Lawlessness, a result.

    But there is no law, about conception.
    There are no rules.
    You cannot have consenting adults, presently.
    Just as there are none, who don’t consent.

    What then if there was rules about conception.
    Would the non consenting male, have a choice.
    In outcomes, options less harsh, or equal parenting.
    Even the female helped, with better outcomes.

    Than abortion.
