Advances in technology have now made it possible to procreate apart from sexual relations through the meeting in vitro of the germ-cells previously taken from the man and the woman. But what is technically possible is not for that very reason morally admissible. Rational reflection on the fundamental values of life and of human procreation is therefore indispensable for formulating a moral evaluation of such technological interventions on a human being from the first stages of his development.

The slippery slope grows slicker.
Please freepmail me if you want on/off this list
Great--when your kid starts to talk, he'll have a cockney accent!
So you would pay to buy the eggs of someone that doesn't have the brain power to run their own life? Would this lead to the kind of world depicted in Mike Judge's new movie, Idiocracy?
'A young woman may think that getting £20,000 for her eggs is worth the risk. But then she might want children at 30 and find out she can't have them.
But she needed that Louis Vuitton hand bag NOW!!!!
Who wants eggs with genes for that kind of stupidity?
I have a feeling mum would have said the same had daughter told her she was going to be a stripper or a prostitute.

I'm going down to the grocery store, buy a dozen and auction them. ;o)
She's clearly not that intelligent, and her looks, while not altogether unpleasant, aren't going to have complete strangers lining up to have children who potentially will look like her. So, why, exactly, is this a good idea? Isn't she taking the same sort of mentality that got her into credit problems, to an entirely different level?
What a role model. I wonder if her mother has suggested other ways a young woman might "get a bit of money". The money's the thing, after all.
Then the gay men have to find a "womb for rent."
And that face, bless her heart.
More to the point, how long before she racks up just as large or larger a debt? And when it's racked up, will she still be young enough to sell eggs?
I'd have to disagree with your comments on her looks.
Quite an attractive young Brit, IMHO.
However, to each their own. Maybe cause she's closer in age to me...she's 26, I'm 27...I don't know.
You're right though...not too much intelligence there if she racked up that much credit card debt.
...if stupidity got us into this mess, maybe stupidity can get us out of it.
Are those Rhode Island Reds, White Leghorns, or Plymouth Rocks?
Over easy or scrambled.....
Sounds to me like she was resourceful in getting out of debt. Shows creativity. Don't be so quick to judge.
Besides...I think it's a "nature vs. nurture" thing anyway. The kid will grow up under more financially secure parents, most likely.
