Researchers aren't in it for the money.

(It's a caaaaaaaat!)
Sindy Wei, now an M.D. and Ph.D., was in medical school when she donated eggs. She liked the idea of helping others, and as a cash-strapped student, she liked the $5,000 she was paid. It was a bad deal. After one painful cycle, doctors extracted 60 eggs from her. She got sick and went to the hospital. She was bleeding internally. If she had flown home, as the fertility center told her to do, she believes she would have died.
I'm kind of amazed by her ignorance. I had freshman Biology and Physiology in college, and know that the number of eggs a woman carries is determined in utero, before the girl is born. If you run out of eggs, that's it. 60 eggs is about 5 years of fertility given away.

So women can kill babies, so other women are forced to buy babies. Is there anything that the Left hasn’t screwed up in this country?

Without getting into the philosophical argument about the ultimate purpose of use of the eggs (life vs. research)it seems to me that the market should be deregulated and the price will be marked to market.
You could even have a daily ‘Egg Exhange” and futures options.
