The Globe and Mail is even catching on

March 28, 2012

My friend sent me this article from the Globe and Mail. 

I seriously wanted to scream. I mean do they think they are hitting a new story here? Cracking the case? This has been going on for YEARS! why is this topic still being published in the paper as if it’s a new, breaking story? Hmm. Maybe because no one cares. Why should  anyone care about a group of women getting paid thousands of dollars for their eggs? 

I’m not sure. 

Maybe because once you start commoditizing eggs and sperm you enter into seriously ethically questionable territory about the commoditization of human life. If I can pay for a beautiful, intelligent young woman to hook me up with some eggs I should be able to pay a doctor to tweak that egg genetically to give that embryo red hair right? Cause red heads do come up on top. lets not kid ourselves there. 

Come on Globe and Mail. Get with the times.
