TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Having Your Baby Through Egg Donation
-- a comprehensive book for people considering parenthood through donated ova, and those supporting them. It takes readers through the decision-making process, focusing on questions they are likely to be asking themselves, including: Are we candidates for egg donation? Will it work? How much does it cost? How do we find a donor? How do we talk about our decision with others? How will we tell our children? Ethical questions related to egg donation are also examined: Can a donor truly have informed consent Is it ethically correct for donors to receive payment, and, if so, is the payment for 'time and effort' or for their eggs?
