Could you/would you have another baby if it meant saving the life of  your current child?

If your current child was ill and needed a blood transfusion, organ replacement, bone marrow, etc. would you have another child in order to fulfill that need?

No. I could never give birth to a child strictly to harvest organs or whatnot from it.

Right now I would say no but one never really knows what they would actually do in a situation like that.

 I might...but it would depend on the whole circumstances....you know?  If it was for organs only, probabally not.  It wouldn't be fair to that baby.  Like a pp said - for cord blood, possibly.  There is a woman who did this in another of my groups - but it wasn't for organis, strictly for her cord blood.  I always think tho - there are just no guarantees!

I don't know.  I want to say whole heartedly, yes, but I don't know.
