Women urged to donate eggs

A billboard campaign was launched yesterday urging women to donate their eggs to childless couples. The campaign, organised by King's Assisted Conception Unit Patient Support Group and CHILD, the national infertility support network, is intended to meet the shortage of donor eggs.

Although it is not illegal for women to be paid for their eggs, the practice is frowned upon by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority and may be banned. The HFEA advises that voluntary donation is preferable to payment. Potential donors are asked to call 01424 222600
