What is your opinion on sperm donor babies? If one of your children has an actively involved father and your other child doesn't, would that cause issues for the second one?

I've always appreciated the idea of a sperm bank, and being able to have children independantly. I guess though I never thought of the idea of a child being raised without father, while having a sibling with a father. I could imagine not only would this cause some confusion - there may be anamosity as well. I think that every child with or without a father, should have a father figure - maybe before having a new child, you should see if there is anyway the other childs father either would like to be involved, or maybe another close family member the child could aspire to.

I think there will be questions, obviously. However, if you know how to answer them then I think it wouldn't be a problem. Just like any case where there is an absent parent, a child deserves to know about their parent.
