U.S. fertility specialist says hysteria over egg donation unfounded

Dr Stillman of Shady Grove defends the industry.

"He called for a number of universal standards to be put in place over the under-regulated egg donation industries in both Canada and the U.S.

Among them, he suggested a national donor registry that sets a limit on the number of times a woman could donate eggs; standardized informed consent on how many eggs a doctor can harvest; pre and post-psychological and medical checkups and standardized prices for egg donation."

Sounds pretty reasonable and open-minded to me. Very nice to hear from someone from within the industry.

Jennifer Lahl, on the other hand,
Is quoted as saying that ivf "has created a society ok with 'babies without sex'."

She said it when I asked her at the screenings of Eggsploitation on Feb 3rd, that its not just donor ivf that she wants to stop, she would like to see an end to all ivf.
