Would you have another baby if it meant........

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?

I do not think there is an easy answer to that.  There are a lot of ethical concerns with that situation.

No, I have plenty of family who would be possible matches and could also give consent.

No. there are other options and I would never have a child just to use that child as a spare.

Maybe. If it was something cord blood would work with, yes. Dh and I have always talked about a big family.

Let's see-have another child whom I would love and cherish to save the life of a child I already love and cherish? Who would let their kid DIE rather than save them? Not me.
