This Comment examines some of the legal issues surrounding the increased use of conception by artificial insemination by donor. The author argues that, while artificial insemination is becoming increasingly significant, it continues to be practiced by doctors without any guidelines for donor selection or a standardized system of record keeping. The author examines the current state of the artificial insemination system and the potential dangers presented by this unregulated system. The author concludes by presenting a model statute for regulating artificial insemination by donor.
