It’s a Buyer’s Market

Egg It's a sad "sign of the tough economic times" when, according to a Wall Street Journal article, women are lining up to sell their precious eggs, receiving $3,000 to $8,000 per donation. 

Besides the health complications which can arise from of having this type of procedure, there is another issue to consider. In trying to attain a "child of their own," at the very least--genetically speaking--the purchasers are ensuring that the child will belong only to one person. 

Gilbert Meilander says, "The deliberate and willed asymmetry of relation--so unlike the mutual asymmetry that exists in adoption--is precisely the problem." In other words, making a baby becomes a one-sided business.
