    DH and I are TTC now. If he were to pass away, harvesting his sperm would be the last thing on my mind. I would be too devastated and mourning his loss, not the loss of our unconceived child or what could be IYKWIM.

    No I wouldn't. I have to say if my partner died suddenly and unexpectedly then harvesting his sperm would be the last thing on my mind. In my honest opinion it is morbid.

    And would I harvest sperm from DH if he died? No. I think it's wrong to create a baby without that persons consent.

    As for our frozen embryo being abhorrent... Well, I plan to use it to create another baby.

    My only question would be financially. If I was left with a home and an insurance payout and no debt
    I would definitely consider it if we could live comfortably. If I was left in the situation we are in now I would have to depend on centrelink and I don't think that is right considering it would be a planned pregnancy.
    But had we had no kids...I might feel totally different. It's hard to say.

    I think it would be a huge legal case if a woman wanted to extract her husbands sperm from his body without him being able to consent to it regardless of prior discussions/plans the couple may have had prior. Personally I don't think it should even be a possibility. Having frozen embryos stored already is a different scenario as it is proof that both parties intended to have children.

    Dh has 28 straws of sperm frozen. We already have 2 children and are trying for a third, if something happened to dh I would not pursue having another child and any remaining embryos and his sperm would be discarded. It wouldn't be fair on the future child not to know or have a father and it wouldn't be right for me bringing a child into the world on purpose if I to be a single mother.

    To answer the question: if we had no children I would harvest from DH as a memory of our love and time together

    Because we already have children I would centre my effort in raising those children and wouldn't feel right raising more children as a widow.

    A mixed view but just my opinion.

    My situation now, no I wouldn't but we already have 4 healthy children.
    Pre children if something had happened to my DH my answer may have been different.

    If the couple had stored before he passed away and there was evidence that he consented to its use then I have no problem. We have discussed what we would do with our frozen embryos if one of us passed away. I would be okay for DP to use them with a surrogate if he wanted a biological sibling for DD. Especially knowing he has to do ivf for him to have children.

    Taking it without permission? Nah. Not my style.
