Rebroadcast: Ethics of Egg Donation

OPB | May 30, 2011 9:06 a.m. | Updated: Sept. 10, 2013 10:10 p.m.

We’re bringing back this discussion about egg donation in celebration of the episode’s recent Gracie Award win.

You can read the conversation that unfolded on the blog when the show first aired here.

Have you donated eggs? Do you have a child conceived through egg donation? Do half of your genes come from a donated egg? Are all eggs created equal, or should people pay more for “better” genes?

  • Dr. John Hesla: Fertility doctor with Oregon Reproductive Medicine
  • Marna Gatlin: Founder, Parents Via Egg Donation; mother of child conceived via egg donation
