WOMEN in Australia who allow their eggs to be harvested for embryonic stem cell research should be paid for the procedure, an academic says.
Professor Loane Skene, from the University of Melbourne's faculty of law, argues the surgery required for egg extraction is different to blood or sperm donation.
Women in New York will be paid between $US5,000 and $US10,000 ($6,200 and $12,600) for each egg harvested.

Why not? Men selling their sperm too, I have no problem with that.

Don't they give you something to increase the amount of eggs you produce, which has been linked to women getting cancer? I heard this somewhere but I'm not sure, if so then yes I think paying a woman for her eggs and health risks is fair.
