There are fertility methods that can use cells other than gametes, that will be ready before head transplants are, if the biological parent of the child is important to someone.
Transplantation does not imply murder or any illicit activity.

No doubt there will be some people who are victimized for this purpose, but far more people will be saved.
The ability to repair the spinal cord is a necessary prerequisite for a body transplant that is anything more than a life support system.

I was actually thinking about it from the donors(and his/her families) perspective. Even if someone is an organ donor does not mean that he necessarily want's to be a "sperm donor" leaving the question if the body should be castrated if the family so wishes.
