Wow, 50k? Seems like a rip off. People should stop doing such things and paying such high prices and maybe won't be a business for it. I'm not trying
to be cruel but a little thinking outside box is in order.
I have a lesbian friend who has been with her partner for years. They wanted a kid through natural birth and needed sperm. They asked and I said sure
based on fact I knew they loved each other, they had been together for last 10-13 years or so that I've known them. I knew they were responsible and
would make great parents. They both worked but could not afford anything compared to price range you're claiming.
She went to get a lawyer at about $2000 to write up a disclosure that I would sign off on rights of child and paid for me to do a HIV/AIDs test and a
physical. $100-200 maybe? Once a month or so she would let me know when she was ovulating. They would treat us to a nice dinner usually at steakhouse
or buffet and my wife and I would go to her house. They was nice restaurants so I know this set them back another $500-1000 because it took 3 tries
for sperm to take. I would put my sperm in a cup and pour it into a large plastic syringe in another room and her partner would inject it in her after
This isn't the only time I've known or been apart of something like this either. I knew another couple where the guy's brother did it for his sterile
sibling. I know that's more preferred because of genetics. My god child ended up looking like lesbian mother; though I don't have rights to her she
calls and considers me her Uncle and plays with my two kids almost every weekend.and other family it was a boy and looks just like mother and
nonbiological father. Some may find this weird.. but I know I'm not only one who would do this.
When you have friends and family you stick by them and you hope and wish for the best for them. I am pretty far right and I live in the bible belt in
south and consider myself pretty radical in Christian values. But hey, it was the nicest thing I've probably ever done and don't regret it in the
least. My wife was a little uncomfortable at first but she loves our new niece and see her today as part of our family just as much as my friends do.
I think only flaw was that my niece has blue eyes, which I have but her mothers dont. They didn't seem bothered and when she conceived they boasted at
her big pretty blue eyes. It tears me up a bit remembering how happy they were when she was born. The Irony? I don't believe in gay marriage. But I
believe it's not up to me to judge. I believe God put me on this Earth to love and care for others, so I did just that.
