Buyers’ Market for Egg Donation?

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

This WSJ article entitled “Ova Time: Women Line Up To Donate Eggs — for Money” notes that clinics have seen an increase in the number of women applying to “donate” their eggs or serve as surrogates, positing that the surge is caused by the economic turmoil. With the increase in applicants, one clinic stated that surrogacy has become a “buyer’s market.” Even more distressing in my opinion is this quote from the president of a Chicago-based reproductive agency: “We’re even getting men offering up their wives. It’s pretty scary.” Scary indeed.
