I'm not saying that I agree with sperm banks or going that route but IT'S NOT MY LIFE.
If someone else wants to , then neither me nor you have any say in the matter.
All we can control is what WE DO in our own lives and what choices and decisions we make and who we get involved with.
Some women turn to sperm banks to fullfill their dreams of having a child.
Some men marry women from other countries and cultures to fullfill theirs dreams when they find the women in their own culture are at odds with their
own values and ideals.
Neither is wrong in their choices.
And you can guarantee that if an artificial uterus became available tomorrow through IVF that men could take advantage of to bypass marriage and
unsatisfactory relationships, a lot of men would do it in a heartbeat.
Not all men, but a lot.
So you have to ask yourself really honesty, if this choice was available to you would you do it?
If you were having fertility problems, it was your last shot to become a father and all your relationships had failed, would YOU do it?
If you were honest, you'd admit that you would at least CONSIDER it.
So is it because there is no equal alternative for men that it is a kind of envy that women can become mothers this way? I'm not saying this is the
case with you, but I'm sure for a lot of men it is the source of their bitterness on this issue.
