As I understand the situation, DC has specified that Son of the Demon is still not part of the standard continuity, not least because it conflicts with what Batman and Son and later stories say about Damian. It was one of Morrison’s inspirations, but not a story he tried to match.

However, we also have to recall that this is a comic-book universe, where science doesn't work the way we know it. Peter Tomasi (who was the first to contact Grant Morrison about writing Batman and heard his ideas before anyone) showed Talia involved in cloning, accelerated growth, gene-splicing, and other fun stuff in Nightwing: Free Fall. So there are ways Damian could be the genetic offspring of Bruce Wayne without being the result of an unprotected roll in the desert.

I'm actually cool with that. Just so long as Talia et al had to work (no, not THAT way!) to create Damien. There ARE things Bruce truly couldn't guard against, being only human. But writing him as naively trusting doesn't work for me.
