257 Words2 Pages
Jessica Cohen, a graduate of Yale, has written the essay “Grade A: The Market for a Women’s Eggs” regarding her experience on donating her eggs to a fastidious infertile couple. The primary reason for her consideration was $25,000 that the couple was willing to pay for the right donor. Although such large amount of money sounds extraordinary to a college student, Cohen wasn’t qualified for the couple’s satisfaction due to her credentials therefore Cohen would not be creating their “perfect child”. She explains many viewpoints of the process of egg donation, health risks correlating with egg donation, and the medical process of conception from donated eggs. After all, creating the ideal child is too easy especially if the person can afford it.
