It isn't that the law is treating men and women differently, like leira said, you are comparing two very different things.
As an egg donor myself, I know all about the contracts both parties have to sign before the donation takes place. The egg donor's full identity is (usually) anonymous to the recipients and the donor is protected from any future child support or custody issues that may arise. Almost all fertility centers that work with egg donors have a team of lawyers that carefully write contracts to ensure that egg donors will never be legally or monetarily responsible for any child that is born as a result of an egg donation.
If sperm donors work through a recognized fertility clinic that also has lawyers and valid contracts, instead of just "donating" sperm by having sex with someone, their rights should be protected just like egg donors.
