About the Movie
The infertility industry in the United States has grown to a multi-billion dollar business. What is its main commodity? Human eggs. Young women all over the world are solicited by ads—via college campus bulletin boards, social media, online classifieds—offering up to $100,000 for their “donated” eggs, to “help make someone’s dream come true.” But who is this egg donor? Is she treated justly? What are the short- and long-term risks to her health? The answers to these questions will disturb you . . . Produced by The Center for Bioethics and Culture (Lines That Divide, 2009), Eggsploitation spotlights the booming business of human eggs told through the tragic and revealing stories of real women who became involved and whose lives have been changed forever.
An eye-opening, educational experience for all egg donors, fertility patients and their families
Very well produced film that exposes the exploitation of women by the unregulated infertility industry. You will be shocked and angered, but you will also be informed and educated. These young women are drawn by the possibility of earning easy money but too often end up sacrificing their health and future. I highly recommend this film as an eye-opening, educational experience for all egg donors, fertility patients and their friends and family.
