This left me asking several questions about the value of the human egg, the definition of a parent and issues of ownership should the donor’s treatment fail.
Can donor consent be compromised? Will this result in the abuse and commodification of the gamete? Is the region prepared for an interaction of this nature? And what might our role be as a regional bioethics society in engaging the stakeholders?
Of note, there are no specific national or regional legislation governing this area of medicine.
