It comes down to a personal choice and what the person can emotionally handle. Do you want to be half related to the child or no relation at all.

For me it was 2 things

1. I was too old when I decided to do this
2. There was no way I could give away a child I was biologicaly related to. Your head has to be in the right place to do it and I knew I couldn't. It takes a super special person to be able to do it.

My tubes are tied so for me the decision was already made.

There are many things to consider, but it all comes down to a personal reason of why we end up going the route we do.
For me, being half related never runs through my head. I am done having kids of my own, therefor I am done with my eggs. They are just going to waste in my opinon. So, why not save myself, body and the family, a ton of hassle and money.?
Its much cheaper, and easier to do TS. Its drug free! Needle free! And has a higher chance of success.
SO that plus many other factors make it black and white to me. I am a TS.
I love my decision and would never have done it different. I love looking at my surro children and seeing bits of me in them, or my kids. It makes me feel like I really did give a piece of me to help someone else be as happy as I am being a parent.
