Producer Sam's guy-friend is going through a major emotional dilemma. His sister has asked him to donate his sperm to her wife so they can have a baby related to both of them. The wife will carry the baby with her egg.
Would you be able to donate an egg or a sperm to a sibling or family member who can't have children, knowing that you would be that kid's father/mother and uncle/aunt?
This is what some of our listeners had to say about the situation:
Of course ! Id even be willing to carry if that were the case— carla goncalves (@carlinhamarie) March 16, 2018
Of course! It's a mindset because it takes a lot more than an egg/sperm to be a parent I would still consider myself the babys aunt— LillyLove (@LillyLove1980) March 16, 2018

If I didn't hate my two biological siblings this would be easier to answer. So rather, "if Elvis and Alex asked you for eggs so they can give Max a sibling, would you say yes?" Sure! ie. If the egg is for good people who need a bit of help to grow their family, I'm cool with it.— EirianLong (@EirianLong) March 19, 2018
