Is it wrong/sin for a woman to donate her eggs? If for some reason, a relative (my cousin for example,) couldn't have kids and I gave her my eggs and her husband fertilized them and it was then implanted in her body?

I would like to ask you who will be the mother of that child, you or your cousin. If God wants your cousin to have a child He will provide for her in His own way. Remember the example of Sarah. when she thought God was not going to give her  a child ,she took matters in her own hands and asked our father Abraham to take Hagar as a wife to conceive and give her a child "So Sarai said to Abram, "See now, the LORD has restrained me from bearing children. Please, go in to my maid; perhaps I shall obtain children by her" (Gen 16:2). Then later she was despised by her maid and was jealous of her maid's son. I am not insinuating that something like this will happen between you and your cousin but I am advising you not to interfere with God's plan for your cousin. Pray for her and may she accept whatever God intends for her.
