Would you do this to make ends meet?

Now more than ever, women are donating their eggs to make ends meet.Others say more people are waiting to procreate, so more donors are needed to meet the demand. the Fertility Center of Las Vegas said compensation is closer to $3,000 to $5,000. http://www.fox5vegas.com/news/17045493/detail.html#- Would it be worth the money to you?

I had thought about doing it in the past. $3-5 thousand dollars is a lot of money and it would help people. I am not sure I would actually do it though.

This is a very interesting topic. I myself am not able to have any more children. But I am happy this way. I am now forty with a four year old son and my life is complete. However, I am saddened by the women who can't bear children or who are having a hard time and need to seek other means to procreate. I can imagine the dozens of people willing to wait and donating their eggs. It is true that money is an issue. I think it could possible be worth it if I were in that position.

Yeah, I can't have kids but the money would be only the icing on the cake if I could have helped someone fullfill their dream of having a child.

I am not sure. I don't have eggs, of course. I think sperm donation is easier -- but it doesn't pay as much. I hear that egg donation is somewhat unpleasant. You might want to read upon it carefully.

Wow that would be a big deal. I think I would donate my eggs, I feel that it would be easier and less emotional then being a surrogate mother and it would help those who want a child to have one of their dreams of becoming a family a reality. I don't have any children from my 17 year marriage so I know how it is to want children and not be able to have them or the money to fix things so that I can.

No..I would get an extra job. But NO ONE raises my children but me. My egges are MY children. Were they to go to another family..I would always spend my life wondering if they were OK..are hey being fed, clothed, getting a great education? I could not live with doing this. My eggs/kids..up to me to raise them, know what I mean?
