In "What Parents Should Know About Frozen Embryo Donation," a recent 8News Investigates piece, Colleen Quinn commented on this relatively new infertility solution.
"The embryo field still generally refers to the combination of two gametes that is the egg and sperm. Most of our state laws consider gametes to be property and property gets donated. It doesn’t get adopted."
Quinn urges couples considering embryo donation to make sure there’s a legal contract.
"The parties need to have a very clear cut release on any parental rights,” states Quinn.
