Samuel Leighton-Dore is 24 and gay.
He wants a child with his partner Bradley Tennant. However, they can only do this with the help of Samuel’s sister Bronte Leighton-Dore. “The only possible chance my partner and I have of waving our respective biological flags in our future kid’s DNA is if my sister donates an egg for my partner’s sperm,” Samuel told Mamamia.
He added ‘’”Call me selfish, call me vain, call me gross – but I can’t think of anything more spine-tinglingly spectacular than finding cheeky glimmers of my parents in the face and personality of my child.”
Bronte won’t even be carrying the baby either; she will just be ‘’offering up the bun for another yet-to-be-determined woman’s oven.”
Naturally, their decision has not come without any criticism as people challenge their decision, including individuals who are throwing ‘’adoption pamphlets’’ down his throat as they think he will regret his ‘’so-called genetic sacrifice’’.
Samuel went on to say “At the end of the day, there’s no right or wrong way to bring a loved child into the world.”
Surely it is OK if the child is loved?
