  2. I wish I could say “yes” but I can’t. Yet. I can say “we’re working on it” and that we’ll let you know as soon as we figure it out.

  4. Re: egg donation podcast. I objected to Professor Greely’s description of the issues presented by those who objected to the law and supported the veto for the payment for eggs for research. The main issue that Professor Greely did not raise was the health risks, known and unknown, of the harvesting of women’s eggs through the IVF procedures. The balance of these risks is obviously different in the context of fertility. The evidence of known risks is readily available (see, e.g., Our Bodies Ourselves website, or Center for Genetics and Society), and there are no registries or long term follow up data for unknown risks, such as ovarian and uterine cancer as a result of the drugs used in ovarian stimulation.

    When I questioned Professor Greely regarding the above as being the primary reason feminist health activists opposed the law he was skeptical about the risks of the procedure….that is fine…however, that does not excuse the fact that he chose not to disclose or discuss that this was in fact, the primary reason they opposed the law…
