Another in our series of interviews of women who have come forward with their stories since the release of Eggsploitation. This story is unique in that the woman was asked first to sell her eggs to help make a baby, then the agency asked her to consider selling her eggs for embryonic stem cell research.
Lahl: You saw an ad in a local paper looking for African-American egg donors. The ad offered $6,000 for selling your eggs. Why did you decide to do this?
Shavonne:* The clinic stated that if my cycle completed, I would receive the total sum of $6,000. I thought it was a harmless way to make extra money, according to the minimal side effects that they presented during my orientation. I was 28 years old, and the money motivated me to do this.
