To start, I just want to say that I love the Jack Rogers advertisements on the previous page. And that I'm eating my quesadilla from Chico's that I got last night. I wanted to do my topic on if the US ddd donation system is moral. You really just told me to do more research about it. I don't really want to take a religious standpoint on this just because. I think a lot of people associate morals and Christianity together but I think people who have no religion can have morals too. When I think about this topic I think about the episode of Law and Order SVU when that husband and wife steal eggs and the one lady's eggs who they still can't produce anymore because of her chemo. If you haven't seen the episode then spoiler alert, her eggs don't make it. Anywho, I think for the argument it could be that people who can't reproduce with their own eggs now have someone else's to use. But against I could say how it's not right to charge someone so much for their eggs but if you do think about it, can you put a price tag on a life? I mean even then, the donor can keep giving her eggs up. I mean how much money is she making by doing that? In class Anna talked about how you have to inject yourself with hormones for 12 months and other practices. In a way, I feel like this could be compared to abortion. Which is ironic because one is taking a life and one is giving, but if you think about it. woman can just go out and do it as they please. Not to say I'm for or against either but I don't know. I don't know if I want to do this topic after talking about it. I'll probably look again at the list and email you this weekend. Maybe I could do it on illegal immigration or not and not to sound ignorant or anything but I don't think it's fair that if two illegal immigrants come over and have a child here the child is a citizen. I don't know if that has anything to do with that but that's definitely how I feel about it. I don't think that's fair at all.
