Article 7 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is here interpreted as according children the right to know their genetic parents. Article 7 affects all children, but it is particularly relevant to children who have been adopted, children of gamete donation and children of misattributed paternity. This dissertation defends Article 7 and, most importantly, defends the use of mandatory DNA testing of newborns and their alleged genetic parents in order to determine genetic parentage.
