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); “Anony­mous Father’s Day” (2011), “Breed­ers: A Sub­class of Women?” (20014)), 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.

Egg Donor Health

 

From the Experts

 

The Infertility Industry

 

Eggsploita­tion makes a pow­er­ful, provoca­tive and, ulti­mate­ly, mod­est pro­pos­al: women who con­sid­er donat­ing eggs have a right to com­plete infor­ma­tion on the risks involved. Lured by promis­es of some­times des­per­ate­ly need­ed mon­ey and a chance to help anoth­er woman, vul­ner­a­ble young women face unknown dan­gers to their health in an unreg­u­lat­ed indus­try. Eggsploita­tion is a com­pelling call for over­sight and research so that egg donors can be tru­ly informed before giv­ing consent.

It is a scan­dal that the infer­til­i­ty indus­try has gone so many years with­out col­lect­ing ade­quate safe­ty data on the risks of mul­ti­ple egg extrac­tion. This makes informed con­sent impos­si­ble for the thou­sands of young women now under­go­ing so-called ‘egg dona­tion’ pro­ce­dures. Every young woman con­sid­er­ing ‘egg dona­tion’ as a way to gen­er­ate income for school tuition or oth­er crit­i­cal expen­di­tures should see this film first. And pol­i­cy mak­ers need to insist that we final­ly con­duct the research that should have been done years ago.

I’ve been a wom­en’s rights advo­cate since 1963, but this film was an eye-open­er for me because I knew noth­ing about the mul­ti- bil­lion dol­lar egg dona­tion indus­try, the phys­i­cal risks to young women that accom­pa­ny egg dona­tion, and the need for research in this area.

I hope this film gets the wide dis­tri­b­u­tion it deserves because the infor­ma­tion in it is vital for young women in the US and abroad, their sig­nif­i­cant oth­ers, their fam­i­lies, and their societies.

This pow­er­ful, impor­tant and infor­ma­tive doc­u­men­tary gives view­ers true insight into the egg dona­tion indus­try and helps us to bet­ter under­stand the des­per­ate need for reg­u­la­tion and over­sight. All prospec­tive egg donors (and recip­i­ents) as well as all prac­ti­tion­ers and agency employ­ees in the egg dona­tion indus­try should be required to watch this film!

     Wendy Kramer, Direc­tor and Co-Founder, Donor Sib­ling Registry

 

Eggsploita­tion is a pow­er­ful and com­pelling film on the extreme risks and dis­re­gard shown to women … a must see for all egg donors and fer­til­i­ty patients. The infer­til­i­ty indus­try’s prac­tice of repro­duc­tive endocrim­inolo­gy is a “dirty lit­tle secret” and should be secret no more.

     Lynne Mil­li­can, Founder, LupronVictimsHub.com

 

What fer­til­i­ty clin­ics and egg dona­tion agen­cies may not tell you. This film should be seen by any woman con­sid­er­ing becoming—or using—an egg donor so that she can bet­ter under­stand the med­ical risks involved.

     Diane Allen, Infer­til­i­ty Net­work, Cana­da

 

Eggsploita­tion is a com­pelling and reveal­ing doc­u­men­tary that gives the view­er an up-close look at the flip­side of the infer­til­i­ty indus­try. You will meet women whose lives were changed for­ev­er after under­go­ing the pro­ce­dure for egg dona­tion. Their dis­turb­ing and heart wrench­ing sto­ries tell a cau­tion­ary tale to all women who are con­sid­er­ing egg dona­tion for the pur­pose of in-vit­ro fer­til­iza­tion or embry­on­ic stem cell research. A must see film for researchers, physi­cians, pro­fes­sors, col­lege stu­dents and feminists.
