  • I would! in a heart beat. it wouldnt bother me any. I've got plenty of eggs to sell so if a less lucky individual would like to use some i'd be happy to let her. And i hope that my husband would feel the same way about his sperm.

  • That depends how much money. :)

  • No. Well, my husband couldn't donate his sperm because he's got a genetic kidney disease, but i'd never sell my eggs.

  • sure why . At this point they are just eggs not babies. I don't think they would want my eggs though I am too old to sell them. But hey if they wanted 44 y.o. eggs I would see them in a heart beat

  • Absolutely NOT. Our DNA is not for sale!

  • i odnt see why not if i really needed the money i would. mainly becuase i waste how many eggs a year. my kids are 4 years apart. so i wasted 48 eggs that someone could use to have a child that they could never have for something like a congential problem with their reproductive system like imcpomtent cervix damage to their fallopian tubes, damage to the vas defrens in a man, removed prostate or testicles becuase of cancer, severe cysts or fibroids. i don't see anything wrong with it. we have women who's mother's took a drug to keep them from miscarrying and not doing the long term damage it would have. the damage showed up in the children that they were taking the drug for

  • NOPE!

    Answer by mominbolt at 11:14 AM on Mar. 7, 2009

  • I seriously considered the idea for a while. Then I was reading testimonials on a website for a place that does it, and the woman was saying how she didn't feel pressure now to have kids b/c somewhere out there she had kids walking around. It really hit me then that this isn't like donating blood, but that I would have other children out there somewhere. I just couldn't get past that thought, so now, I wouldn't do it.

  • No way.. Then i'd have a kid running around and not even know about it. Who even knows that they'd be treated right.. And what if it turned out that because I did that.. i can't have anymore kids. or because of any other health problem.. Nope.. these eggs are mine baby!
