Women are selling their eggs for money

by frugalista on August 8, 2008

Product_fertility_goddess_small Because the nation’s economy is shaky, an increasing number of women are donating their eggs for profit, according to a CNN story.  An egg donor can get  from $5,000 to $10,000. One woman in the article needed the money to pay for school.  Women who smoke, have a body mass index above 30 or have a history of gynecologic problems are ineligible to donate. Everyone is hustling to make a buck.

Ladies, would you donate your eggs if you were cash-strapped? Would it be hard to have a mini-you running around that you couldn’t raise? Is it worth the hormone shots and health risks to earn some extra money? Is $10,000 too low for giving the world your egg?
