    Would you feel your rights have been violated? feel a little uncomfortable? not care at all?
    For me I would definately feel a bit uncomfortable as my real parent could of been an excellent role model but I probably won't even have a chance to find out

    Rights violated as in the right to be loved by your biological parents instead of say your father being some random sperm donor who couldn't care less about you.

    You're right, what a git. Giving you life and all.

    EDIT: Negged, for that?!

    A bit weird, if I'm being concise.

    I don't think I would care because it doesnt really change anything but who knows... You never know until you're in that position.

    As for the "right to be loved" complex, that really depends on how you're raised

    Giving someone a life isn't necessarily something to be proud of & also the point earler is not my opinon it's just the opinion of some people

    They Meant the other person should be grateful for the life they have.

    Agree with vixen47, weird initially.

    I might be curious to know who the donor was but I think there are much more important qualities for a parent to have than being related to the child, so I don't think I'd be too bothered. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't consider the people who raised me to be any less my parents though.

    No, but it's something to be grateful for, by and large.
