    Very good points all. For the record I was not sold on the idea of limiting - I don't think it's for me to tell anyone that they can or can't have a baby. I just know that there is such a limited supply of eggs and sperm that thought if there DID have to be limits, then one baby from donor egg and or sperm might be a way to go. Let me make it clear though that I don't think any of us have to right to say who can and can't have a baby.

    I know in the US you can be paid for being an egg donor - I know quite a few women who have done it for some cash. Not sure how I feel about that.

    the current limits are per family ....

    so one donor can only donate to 5 different families. They can donate as many times to each of those families as the individuals choose.

    so limiting it to 1 live baby per family isnt going to change anything.

    I agree with others - the answer is in making people more aware of donation. Promoting that gift .....

      Ah yes, that makes perfect sense. Of course limiting to 1 wouldn't make a difference! Stupid me.

        Promoting the donation is actually illegal in Australia, in my opinion that wouldn't help at the moment because if donors having to register there able to be contactable at a later date and they obviously don't want this

        As before the law changes there were 50 donors available in nsw alone after the introduction of the registry there was 5 what dies that tell you most men don't want to be on it

          You haven't answered my question though. Why only heterosexual couples? Same sex couple have medical reasons why they can't get pregnant (lack of sperm or uterus depending on the sex of the couple) - medically impossible for them to get pregnant.

          I didn't know promoting donation is illegal in Australia - does anyone know why that is?

            TNTdad seems to only care about himself and his own family.

            Yes I do did you have to wait 2 years we did to access the registry than we only had 3 goes to get pregnant if not we were back at the bottom of the list again

            whilst same sex couples and single women access the registry with no medical problems there decision is lifestyle ours is medical we should come first in this situation whilst there continues to be a shortage

                Are you saying that homosexuality is a lifestyle choice? Are you saying being single is a lifestyle choice? What if you can't find a partner, should you then not be able to have children? What if you are a lesbian, how do you suggest that Lesbians have children?

                    I'm not acknowledging any comment from TNTdad but would like to know how the person who suggested lesbians find their own donor, do that? We used American donor sperm from a clini, paid $1000 for one ampule, which is one insemination and received no Medicare refund etc. There was over 15 donors to chose from. I have pcos and the possibility of falling pregnant first go was slim.

                      You ladies don't seem nice. If you don't agree with something someone says don't say anything at all. Turn the other cheek

                          I also think lesbians should find there own donor sperm than diminish the stocks in the donor registry as every pregnancy is counted as 2 by the authorities against that donor

                                I don't think heterosexual couples are more deserving then any one else. What makes a heterosexual couple more deserving than a lesbian couple or a single woman.Who says they will make better parents.

                                There are a couple of reasons why DH won't donate. If he did donate he would never want to know the child, he would never want the child to knock on his door and ask questions. In his opinion once he has 'filled the cup' it's no longer anything to do with him.

                                I hope to one day donate my eggs. I am not at that stage yet but I am getting closer to been able to do that. I also would not want to know if a child resulted because I'm afraid I'd always see it as giving up my own child. It's the same reason I could only ever be a gestational surrogate.
