Opps, hit to soon. Got a phone call today from hubby, on the way out of his office, telling his son to hang in there he is doing a good job, son said its his eyes that bother him the most, but his girlfriend offered to pay for that new laser eye surgury. Hubby said where is she getting the money for that? He said she sold her eggs? I was silent, he said heck if she can get 5k for her eggs, that my daughter could get 10k. Now aside from the compliment on my genes, what do you think about young girls selling their eggs??????? Hubby said hell, I'll sell my sperm if I can get that kind of money, I said not after they meet you. Besides, your to old, or is it the same for men as it is women??? So, what do you think the consequences would be, if any??????
I kept my mouth shut, but don't know.

Molly,
This has actually sparked my curiosity too. I have worked in health care for awhile. I've heard some of selling eggs for $. With all due respect, I don't know you or your husband's age. However, with women you probably know that there is an increased risk for Down Syndrome and other birth defects with older eggs. I have not actually heard anything like that about the men. I've known men to have children at the age of 70.
I guess my answer is that I'm not sure about how I feel about this for young girls. I do feel like there are people out there who want children and can't have them. There are also children who need to be adopted, but I have a friend (therapist also) who is running into a lot of obstacles in attempting to adopt. Maybe this would happen with the eggs and a young girl selling them, that does scare me in a way.
Molly, to be honest with you, it does bother me that your husband has suggested that your daughter do this-especially after he said that his son's g/f did this to get "his" son that Lasik surgery. The way you described his attitude disturbs me more than this egg thing.
I am definitely not trying to upset you so I'm sorry if I did. I know you wanted feedback and you have given so many people "wonderful" feedback. You're awesome!

Actually, they use frequent injections of some kind of artifical horomone to make the follicles mature at an accelerated rate. Use of those hormones has been linked to increased rates of cancer, so that's a point of concern I would definately think about. From what I've heard, I wouldn't do it myself!!!!

thanks for your responses. My very first reaction, was that I was disgusted. One more opportunity to further the decay of the family, as a foundation for society. Women have been test subjects for so many things, and this is one more monatary trap, with consequences that are unknown in the future. Just like all the other Rx out there today, that folks just keep getting script for as a bandaid.
My precious potential 10k per egg drop stallion, is studying medical ethics as a potential masters program, she is in her 4th year, fortunately she said she would never do anything to jepordize the possiblity of not having children in the future, so it is not something that she would entertain. She said that she had heard of it, but had no idea there was so much money involved, and then added up her student loans, but said she would dance on tables first, followed with just joking mom, don't have boobs, and won't buy those either. She is a TA, and traing another to replace her in that class, and said she would present it as a paper.
My husband and I disagree on so many things, that it doesn't surprise me, but again the double standard, he is soooooooooo down on abortion, for any reason, so go figure. I guess when you have a stronger spiritual base, you have more concearn for family structure, stability and think about long term consequences, don't know, but how sad to discover that your only child has no intentions of making a family or really marriage.
I wonder as well if this isn't the reaction to all of the divorce, and kids in day care since they were 6 weeks old. No right or wrong here, but hubbys son, and girl friend both were in day care since 6 weeks,no intent to marry, or procreate. I was a stay at home mom, and both girls want kids and a marriage. Who knows any more.

Hey Molly, how's it goin'? First of all, thanks for all the support you've given me. You're a very intelligent and caring person. On the egg issue, I, myself, don't have any children (yet). I don't think I could sell my eggs though. I would always be wondering about the child, if he/she had a loving family and a good life. I don't think I could give up a baby for adoption either. Don't get me wrong, I think adoption is a wonderful thing. One of my best freinds gave her baby up for adoption when we were 20 or 21. I admire her to this day for doing that. I remember visiting her in the hospital and holding the baby and thinking that this was the most selfless thing I have ever seen a person do. I just know I don't have it in me to sell my eggs and never know what happened. I also wonder what the legal ramifications would be. If biological parents can get adopted children back, what would happen in a case like this? What if the biological mother changed her mind? I suppose you'd have to sign a release, but I'm sure there are many attorneys that would fight the case. I guess I wouldn't condemn anyone for doing it, I just know I couldn't do it myself.

There are so many issues, and the future will tell, but I agree with you on the adoption thing, don't think I could do it, truly a loving act, and a wise decision for the person who makes it. Kids deserve a two parent family who are there for them,and if not, then let them be loved by others. Life is crazy sometimes, and I guess we can't judge, just let others learn their lessons.
