The Ministry of Health made public a draft of legislation aiming to regulate gamete donation. The draft embraces donor’s anonymity with some limitations. A donor can be re-contacted by the physician treating a couple and asked to share some medical information provided the donor gave informed consent to being re-contacted and access his/her medical record is needed because of serious reasons concerning the health of the embryo and the newborn. The draft also adopts the principles that donation must be voluntary and gratuitous and that the number of pregnancy traceable to a single donor must be limited.
