The Law only contemplates two scenarios where the identity of the donor can be disclosed: the first, in case the child is seriously ill or in danger of death, and disclosing the identity of the sperm donor is the only way to save him/her; the second scenario, the identity of the donor will be disclosed when appropriate under the Criminal Procedural Laws, provided that such information is indispensable to achieve the proposed legal purpose.
Are there any cases in which the identity of the donor can be revealed?
