Regent Law Student Writes Winning Embryo Donation and Adoption Essay


Fullerton, Calif., April 7, 2008 – Regent Law student Jonathan Penn was awarded $1500 for his winning position paper responding to a delicate issue presented on the subject of embryo donation and adoption. The winning students in Nightlight Christian Adoptions’ 2008 national essay contest carefully tackled the issue of how to handle custody of a child born through embryo adoption after discovering that the egg donor never intended for any resulting embryos to be donated.
