This chapter considers the arguments raised against the increased regulation of fertility markets. The first argument is that donor-conceived family networks differ so fundamentally from more traditional families that they deserve different legal treatment. The second is that disclosure of identifying information will decrease the supply of donors and restrict parental choice without any countervailing benefits. A third set of arguments notes the negative potential of regulation to allow for the imposition of particular political views that might prevent, for example, single people or gay and lesbian couples from using assisted reproductive technology (ART), and that might upset the balance of parents' and children's rights. A final set of concerns relates to the potential for imposition of unwanted relationships, for undermining the integrity of the donor-conceived family, and for invading the privacy rights of donors.
