Psychiatric Quarterly. XXII, 1948: Fictions in Domestic Relationships. Wladimir G. Eliasberg. Pp. 638–640.

Joseph Biernoff

Eliasberg, referring to certain cited court cases, makes a plea for the disposal of the fiction that there is something mystical about the biological ties between parents and child. There are cultures in which this fiction is absent. The early emotional relationships between child and parents or parent surrogates are more important than the biological ties.

In artificial insemination with the consent of the husband, the child should be considered the offspring of the mother and her husband. Just as one cannot withdraw from the legal act of adoption so must neither mother nor father have the right to withdraw from an act of consent by which an artificial insemination is legalized. The legal profession is advised to act accordingly.
