Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome is a Real Threat to Women
If you haven't been convinced by now, go read this. This is the recent experience of a young women who is undergoing infertility treatment. Approximately 30 eggs were harvested from her body, leaving her in severe pain with massive water retention, a distended stomach, dehydration, high fever and chronic vomiting over the course of a few days. This is the same process necessary to harvest eggs from the so-called donors that I believe are being exploited by the money-driven research facilities and designer baby clinics. This can't really be what we want for our young women, to suffer for the sake of doubtful research and unethical procreative techniques - all for a few bucks. This is not a life-saving procedure and simply should not be permitted as it is a real risk to women's health.
