Not for sale...



As I was driving down the highway today, I saw a HUGE billboard asking me to sell one of my eggs for $10,000. I can tell you with all assurance that if a person brought $2 million to me for one of my eggs, I wouldn't bat an eyelid; the answer would be NO!! Not that 2 million doesn't sound great and it would definitely change my life for good,but the mere fact that a part of me is out in the world, without me, is too much for me to bear. To think I would wake up every day not knowing if this egg is in a petri dish or a beautiful baby girl/boy/twins... not knowing if they were safe, hungry.. ummmh...NO!

ETA: Just realized that in the pic, while the mother is holding the baby...the egg donor is holding a bunch of shopping bags. Ohh so the next time I realize that I dont have enough cash for a new sweater and tiffany bracelet, I'll just sell an egg!

I hear a lot of people do this.
I can't even be a surrogate mum, not to talk of donating my egg....my egg is so not for sale.

What the heck? That's so selfish and cruel but people think differently so don't blame them you know, but I strongly believe our culture didn't raise us to donate our eggs for another to use for shopping spree like are you for real ...rather they should have shown two happy couples having a fun time with the children not shopping bags.lol
