If you've got an argument in favor of abolishing the incest taboo I'm all ears. Just saying "it's the new millennium!" is not an argument, though.

|It seemed earlier you were saying surrogates had the power to change their minds .|
My mom is married to a younger man, and he doesn't want children right now. She's afraid that if and when he wants a child, she might not be physically able to have one.
Would I be her surrogate?
I'm just not sure. It's not the issue of carrying a baby to term and then parting with it, because this particular baby would end up being my brother or sister so I'd be a part of their life. But...what about all the children in the world who have no family? Wouldn't adoption just be a better choice in her situation?
I just don't know. This is a tough question. Lots of conflicting emotional data to sort though. :
...and you can't slam a mother considering use of a surrogate to have a child any more than you can slam any mother who has her own offspring.
|It is highly unusual for a women who has a "proven" fertility track record (conceiving and bearing healthy children) to all of a sudden only lose part of her fertility, like she'd have great eggs and a bad uterus or a perfect uterus but bad eggs.... it all starts to decline together most of the time. So just saying, she'd be unlikely to have star quality eggs and a shot uterus.|
|Unless you'd be okay with it being YOUR egg and your stepfather's sperm, you probably won't have to cross this bridge|
