Canadian mother has frozen her eggs for use by her seven-year-old daughter, who is likely to become infertile.
Should the girl opt to use the eggs and gain regulatory approval, she would effectively have a baby that was her half-brother or sister.
Critics said the work, presented at a fertility conference in Lyon, was deeply concerning.
But the doctors from the McGill Reproductive Center, Montreal, called the donation an act of motherly love.

I'm going to disagree with the above opinions if I may...
1st, from a strictly scientific standpoint, the whole idea behind procreation is to pass along your own genes. If you can't do that, then this would seem to rate as an awfully close second.
2nd, it isn't our place to decide what's normal, acceptable or traumatic to any particular person or group of people. It would need to be handled carefully to be sure, but if it is, it may be perfectly normal and acceptable to the possible child in question.
