There are many different reasons thrown out by critics and proponents alike about why a woman would become an egg donor. And, all of them are right to an extent…really. Why a woman becomes an egg donor is both a personal one and a public one – why? Because every woman is different, and every proponent/critic has their own public reason for proclaiming why someone is an egg donor. A crazy concept, right? It sure is.
But, the long and short of it is that we here at Conceptual Options believe that there are only two real reasons a woman becomes an egg donor – and here they are:
1. Compassion & Service to the World
This sounds idealistic, but it is true. Most people in the world want to make a difference in some way, and this is one way to do it. Making a family become a reality for someone who cannot is one of the most compassionate things that a woman can do for others. whether LGBTQ or not.
2. Education & Empowerment
Every single egg donor must go through a very through and complete psychological and medical screening – most egg donors who undergo a cycle learn more about their own body and mind then they ever thought that they would.
