    Well some women have been forced to have hysterectomies or have other damage and I can completely see the need.

    I always appreciate when modern medicine looks to women and their fertility instead of just men and theirs. Hopefully insurance companies can start thinking about more then just men and cover it (along w/ countless other female fertility/birth control procedures).

    I don't see what the big deal is really. It seems like it would be like any other transplant.

    I actually think it's great this procedure would be available to people

    Hey, if anyone wants mine it will be on the market by Christmastime! A little stretched out, but proven to hold babies, yup.

    On a more serious note, I think it's great. I'm definitely considering surrogacy and would donate mine after for sure if it becomes more common and is effective!

    it just seems weird....I dunno, I could see if maybe it was a cadaver uterus, but they are talking ones from live women to from hysterectomys and the like. Dont they usually take them out because there is something wrong........

    I dunno, it just seems kinda creepy, then again, I have cadaver bits in me already.....hmmmm

    wouldnt that be nice. i think in the long run a transplant would probably cost the same or less as IVF for a surrogate (if the IVF takes the first time).

    I thought about surrogacy too. I dont think there is anything wrong with it, I think it just caught me off gaurd because its not an organ I would normally associate with transplants.....
