Treating infertility has become big business and biotech companies have made an industry out of recruiting young women to donate their eggs. What isn’’t well-known, however, are the sometimes-serious physical consequences for donors. A shortage of eggs has placed vulnerable women in the path of the stampede to fill the demand. A new film called Eggsploitation is shining a light on this industry. And it’’s been nominated for Best Documentary in the California Film Festival. The film interviews women who’’ve donated eggs and experienced devastating medical problems. Experts also weigh in to inform shocked viewers just how unregulated this marketing of body parts is. It’’s my hope Eggsploitation will be a catalyst to educate women considering donating their eggs.
