Would You mind your SO donating Sperm/Eggs?

There's an interesting question on Cafemom today. The question is:

Would you mind your SO donating sperm or eggs for money?

I've never really thought about it before. But my immediate response is NO. First of all, I don't see the reason why money should be spent on IVF when there are children already born that needs loving parents. If your unfortunate to have fertility issues, perhaps that is the creator telling you something. Perhaps you are meant for bigger and greater things, like adopting a child. 

I just don't see where a couple should go to such great lengths to have a biological child. Genetics does not a family make! 

Another reason I am against my Dh donating sperm is that I consider it MINE. I don't believe any man should "donate" his seed if he's not willing to raise his child. I just couldn't be OK with a child out in the world that was my husbands and not know the child. Nor could I be OK with a child with my own genetic makeup being a stranger to me. 

What about you, would you be OK with selling your own or your SO's sperm/eggs?
