Is Egg Donation Safe?
Jessica Wing was a healthy Stanford University student when she was paid to donate eggs on three separate occasions—funds which she allocated toward her student debt. Less than ten years later, she died of colon cancer. Because Jessica had no family history of the disease, her mother, Dr. Jennifer Schneider, wondered if there might be a link between the many hormone injections necessary for egg donation and Jessica’s cancer. But to her surprise, Dr. Schneider discovered that not a single study has been done on the long-term health risks of egg donation.
