John Robbart, a 23-year-old from San Diego, Calif., has known he was conceived using a sperm donor for as long as he can remember.

The European Commission has suspended talks on part of a far-reaching EU-US free trade deal amid concern that hard-won social protections in Europe might be undermined.
