The child I donated milk to couldn't survive without breastmilk... he has SMA and cannot tolerate food or formula. To me, providing him with breastmilk is more important than giving it to my healthy baby who can tolerate formula (hypothetical baby, because I've never been in the situation to need donor milk). If a mama had to choose between donating to my healthy baby, and my former recipient baby, I would much prefer the milk go to him.

I'm not trying to start an argument or debate, and I never said anyone should dictate what is a medical need... I was simply answering the OP's question with my opinion.
