A conversation with Cassandra Adams about the intersection (or not) of adoptees, donor-conceived people, and the rights of both.
Adopted people and donor-conceived people appear to be natural allies. But what makes that so? Identity? Genetics? Rights? What do adoptees have in common with donor-conceived people? And what are our remarkable differences? In an Adoptees United conversation with Cassandra Adams, a donor-conceived person, we will hear about commonalities and differences for people who have no general right to know their own full genetic history.
