The infertility industry in the United States has grown to a multi-billion dollar business. What is its main commodity? Human eggs. Young women all over the world are solicited by ads—via college campus bulletin boards, social media, online classifieds—offering up to $100,000 for their “donated” eggs, to “help make someone’s dream come true.” But who is this egg donor? Is she treated justly? What are the short- and long-term risks to her health?
Produced by The Center for Bioethics and Culture (Lines That Divide, 2009), Eggsploitation spotlights the booming business of human eggs told through the tragic and revealing stories of real women who became involved and whose lives have been changed forever.
You are invited to watch this controversial video and then participate in a moderated discussion of the issues raised and their potential impact on you or someone you know.
Limited seats are available and will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. You are welcome to bring your lunch.The presentation will begin promptly at 1p.m. noon. Please arrive early to secure your seat. Thank you.
