Would You Give Your Sperm or Eggs Without Asking Questions?

Nadya Suleman, mama to octuplets and a total of 14 children, has caused quite a bit of hoopla in recent weeks. All the media attention has raised questions as to the sperm donor's identity. Denis Beaudoin, a former boyfriend of Suleman's, came forward to talk about the possibility that the kids are his. While in his 20s and dating the now-famous woman, he made several sperm donations on her behalf when she told him she had ovarian cancer. In retrospect, he says he should have asked more questions. Would you give your eggs or sperm to a boyfriend or girlfriend so readily?

MacGirl you're right on the money. I'm so over this woman and her madness. She needs help . . . I wonder what he does for a living to support a woman and 14 kids? I guess nothing if she's living at home with her parents.

To my boyfriend, would I give him my eggs so HE can have kids? Well, no. I want to be married and have children, not just give my eggs to a random significant other I may not even spend my life with. What the hell is the point? I WOULD donate my eggs for a good cause, obviously going through doctors and whatever else, because I am 22, and it's not as if donating some eggs is going to leave me bankrupt. However, I would definitely ask many, many questions and find out what exactly my involvement would be if my eggs ended up being successfully fertilized and a baby was born. I don't think my BF would donate his sperm, but I think eggs are a little different...not sure why. I probably never will get a chance, but I don't mind. As for family, I'd give eggs to a close family member. I don't have a sister, but if my sister-in-law and her husband really needed some eggs to have her be pregnant, blah blah blah, then I'd donate my eggs to her.

Here's another looney tunes looking for his 15 minutes of fame.My heart breaks for those children. As for donating my eggs, unless if for any reason one of my sisters couldn't have children and needed them, then it's a definite no with or without the questions.....

I had talked with my sister about this years ago and I would have donated at that point... only to her and only if something were wrong with her eggs. I would never do it for a boyfriend to have a child or his sister or great friend... just my sister.

I wouldn't give my eggs and my husband wouldn't give his sperm, period. Not even with a list of hundreds of questions.

So if you were possibly the father of 14 kids all under the age of 7 would you be looking to pay that child support?? Um no. He's in it for the money. These poor kids, they need real parents to love and care for them :-(
