This is an interesting thread, as my dh and I were talking about donation a few days ago. I was wondering about the process, but also about the fact that he told me that, OK, and here's where it gets foggy, that eggs can be sold for research in making and using stem cell research? I am not against stem cell research, just wondering if anyone else knew about it, and can you choose someone to give your eggs too, or are they just banked?
He feels funny about sperm donation because then he said there would be his dna out there walking around with no way of knowing if the children would be well taken care of. I wonder about this too, how I would feel to know that I had a piece of myself out there, but I also think or maybe hope that is someone is willing to put themselves through such a hard and difficult process they would love that baby and take wonderful care of it. I wonder too in the future if that child wanted to find it's biological mother, or dna mother?, if they could. Wow, it gets pretty complicated.
I thought I might be donating my eggs to my sister, but she ended up not needing them, and sometimes I wonder if it might be wierd to know that you niece or nephew was genetically yours, but then again, your nieces and nephews already share someof your dna, so what's a little more?
Sorry to hijack, just some of my questions, wondering if anyone else has had any of the same questions?
