Ethics of Selling Eggs for Stem Cell Research

Some ethicists have argued that paying women for their eggs might create an exploitative trade. But in this case, it may be the reason why the researchers were able to collect enough healthy eggs (they used 270 in all) to get their historic result.

Glenn McGee, PhD, the Center’s John B. Francis Chair in Bioethics, talks about the ethics of selling eggs for stem cell research in this edition of The Bioethics Channel.
