“Eggsploitation: Maggie’s Story” follows one woman’s journey of learning about “helping” others have a child they desperately want, what she discovered in becoming an egg donor, and the consequences that followed. Maggie was told how special she was, but she was never informed of the risks egg donation posed to her own health and well being. She was used repeatedly for others’ gain, but when things turned bad, she was left on her own to navigate tests, treatments, surgeries, and an unknown prognosis.
From The Center for Bioethics and Culture, producers of and the award-winning Eggsploitation (2010, 2013) Anonymous Father’s Day (2011), and Breeders: A Subclass of Women?.
“A must-watch film for anyone contemplating becoming an egg donor. Maggie’s story shows how well meaning women who want to help others risk their own health and indeed lives, and how unscrupulous doctors put their profit before the egg donor’s state of health. Also, a must-watch for anyone contemplating using donated eggs for IVF or surrogacy. Remember, there is a woman from whose body these eggs come who might die because of your desire to have a child. Don’t proceed. Stop right now.”
— Renate Klein, Ph.D., women’s health researcher and FINRRAGE coordinator
“Maggie’s Story is a devastating look into the hidden dark side of the fertility industry and the dangers that egg donors don’t realize they face. It’s a reminder that commercializing the human body can have permanent consequences.”
— Scott Carney, author of The Red Market: On the Trail of the World’s Organ Brokers, Bone Thieves, Blood Farmers, and Child Traffickers.
