that is a tough situation..I do not know if I could have a child for "spare parts" for one of my children..but it would be tough knowing that not having a match could be lethal for my living child..knock on wood, I hope I am never in that situation.

I wouldn't do this. I understand there are parents who do this for a variety of reasons but I just don't feel i would be able to.

 i'd feel so bad for that second baby. i mean there are babies who are mistakes or surprises, but to be conceived to be used for parts....? that could mess a kid up!

 I would do it in a heart beat. Its not like they poked and prodded the baby they took the imbilical cord after delivery and used that to cure the older child.
