You Won THAT in a Raffle?

First prize in a UK raffle is a human egg.

This “raffle” is part of a repulsive publicity ploy by the U.S.-based Genetics & IVF Institute (which bills itself as “the world’s largest, fully integrated, specialized provider of infertility and genetics services“) and the UK-based London Bridge Fertility, Gynaecology and Genetics Centre.

The London Mail has the story here.

This “raffle” should shock the doubt out of anyone who has ever questioned the existence of a massive commercial trade in human body parts — and human eggs, in particular.
