'DW' reports on the news that children of anonymous sperm donors in Germany now have the right to demand the identity of their biological father. The new decision came after two sisters, 12 and 17 years old, appealed to the Federal Court of Justice in Karlsruhe after a reproductive clinic refused to provide their father's identity, citing age as a reason. The case was then passed to Germany's Federal Court of Justice which declared that "a minimum age was not necessary" for disclosing a sperm donor's identity.
