BYO egg – Or should IVF donors be paid?

I wrote this article while interning at Crikey. It looks at the situation in Australia, the UK and the US in terms of how egg donors are compensated. In the UK standardised compensation of approximately $1,200 AUD has just been introduced and the waiting lists for eggs has dramatically reduced. In contrast, there is no legislated payment for Australian egg donors and couples must between two-six years for a donated egg.
