 Egg Donors to Receive £800

Britain's fertility watchdog has proposed that the government lift the ban on sale of eggs and sperm in the country and pay £800 for those who donate their eggs.

With the current ban in place, a large number of couples who are unable to conceive naturally are travelling to foreign clinics including Hungary and Slovenia. Health experts in Britain believe that foreign clinics do not follow safety procedures correctly while there is also a risk of multiple births with such clinics implanting more than two embryos to increase the chances of a successful pregnancy.

The head of the Human Fertility and Embryology Authority, Lisa Jardine, now wants the government to solve the scarcity of eggs and sperms in fertility clinics by lifting the ban and following Spain's model by offering up to £800 to those who donate their eggs, a point concurred by Anthony Rutherford, chairman of the British Fertility Society.

"Women who donate eggs have to undergo consultations, medical investigations, a course of injections and small operations. That is a lot to go through and £250 is not enough", Rutherford said.
