Fact Sheet — 3 Things You Should Know About Egg Donation

Young women are bombarded by ads to “donate” their eggs to help people have a baby. These ads show up in their campus newspapers, in their facebook newsfeed as well as places like CraigsList. Sadly, women are not told about the short or longer-term harms and risks.

Our award winning documentary film, Eggsploitation, is a must-see film that tells the stories of real women in the U.S. who needed the money and thought what they were doing was safe. Nothing could be further from the truth. And now, states like California have legalized the buying and selling of eggs for research purposes, broadening the reach to women of color, poor and low-income women, as well as women in college.
