In brief: Partner vs. donor
Can i assume you mean anonymous donor insemination? This is a very important quetsion, but one that's impossible to generalize.
The 'social price' depends most on the beliefs and values you share (or do not) with your family and close friends. Where you live also impacts what you call 'social cost, ' which is very different if you live in, say los angeles vs. A small conservative community.
