Half-price IVF for eggs

14th September 2007

A controversial “egg-sharing? scheme has been launched in the north of England where women are being offered half-price fertility treatment if they donate some of their eggs to medical research.

The scheme, being run by the Newcastle Fertility Centre and is funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC), offers women £1,500 towards the costs of In-Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) if they donate half their eggs.

However, the group Comment on Reproductive Ethics, claims the scheme is “lunacy? and says it will put vulnerable, infertile women under pressure.
