Ideal Egg Donors Stand to Get Paid a Fortune for Their Genes

There's been an unprecedented trend when it comes to paying egg donors. It seems people are now willing to pay unbelievably high prices for eggs that possess the ideal characteristics desired by buyers for children to rear. If you have a high IQ, a graduate of a top university, and with looks that are regarded as beautiful, you have a good chance of earning a good fortune as you can possibly get paid up to $50,000 for a single egg.

But don't think that you can simply go to a "donation" center and offer one of your eggs for sale! There's this unethical practice of infertile couples paying fees that are way over the norm or what's acceptable in the hope that they can have children who are perfect in the eyes of society. Laws and definite regulations are lacking when it comes to the uses of this relatively new egg transplant technology, although much of the rules that have been followed were released by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM).

The ethics committee of the organization has recommended that fees over $5000 require justification and that sums over $10,000 are unaccaptable. But like rules, these recommendations are not followed for the most part, owing to the reluctance of women to give their eggs away. Only a fortune would make them sell their eggs. Advertisements in college newspapers were discovered to offer as much as $5,000 for an egg. The fees appear to be directly proportional to the SAT scores of potential donors; in other words, if you are proven to be intelligent, you command a high price for your genes.

According to the ASRM, the guide was released to avoid ethical issues about prices of the "seeds of human life." For many people, such things should be valued beyond any amount of money, but it seems the practical thing to do for "ideal" women who need money is to sell for more. Would you sell your egg for $50,000?
