A busy media time as the baby business is bustling. Approximately 8 million U.S. women suffering from some type of infertility. Are we playing God? You tell me. Listen hear to the interview I did with PBS on their Religion and Ethics Newsweekly program. Debora Spar of Harvard, is also on the program–You may recall my review of her book, “The Baby Business”. Also, my radio interview here from last week on similar issues. And finally a SHOUT OUT for:
Have you experienced any problems associated with egg “donation” ? Do you know someone who has undergone egg extraction and later developed a reproductive cancer, infertility, or other health problem? We are interested in knowing the stories of women who have been harmed by this practice so that women considering whether or not to donate their eggs for research can be adequately informed and forewarned. I’d like to hear from you!
