Abstract:     
Human egg donation is a fast growing segment of the infertility industry, and represents new challenges to the law. However, the legacy of the past prompts the discussion in this article. Legacy of the past refers to the legal and social precedents that inform the current debate over the direction of the law in recognizing the parent-child relationship that are formed when gametes are donated by individuals who do not intend to rear the resulting child. It also refers to our relationship with ancestors and descendents.

This paper argues that America makes certain that genetic information is not only available for every child so conceived, but also identifying information is provided. This is in order to keep those ties to the past.
