Take one overworked metaphor and a lot of hyperbole and what you get isn't an argument - just a plethora of purple prose.

Womens eggs?

At first this sounded a bit funny, sort of like mens sperm.

On second thought they're on the way to making sperm from eggs and eggs from sperm, in which case we get womens sperm and mens eggs. Artificial womb also under construction.

Brave New World, here we come (or not, if that reads like a pun).

The consequence of women not donating "eggs" - what an aweful word - and canvasing tea circles, and knitting circles- sounds rather like chook collectives - is that scientists will look to third world countries where women may well be prepared to offer ova for a small fee.

Alternatively, would it not be possible for ova, or rather ovaries, to be harvested from deceased women. Presumably, the technology to present viable ova from this method is already here.

Make your thoughts too life and or moving on or not, that's the living. This is the freedom of speech or thoughts that will catch in your throat. Again! Thats the living.

I cant help you.

There was never an ethical issue to those who bothered to read the literature. No pre-implantation embryo bcomes a human being. None of us was ever a zygote.
