This paper argues that transsexual people should be offered the same options as “any person that risks losing their germ cells because of treatment for a malignant disease.” Some options discussed are: sperm banking (for MTF transsexual parents), oocyte banking, and embryo banking. De Sutter states that “current technology offers transsexual people the possibility to obtain children who are genetically their own in their future relationships and the option of gamete banking should therefore be discussed before starting hormonal and surgical reassignment treatment.”
