Is it me, or is there an unusually high demand for Asian egg donors, in comparison to perhaps Jewish, black, or hispanic egg donors? Why would there be?
Maybe it's just because I'm in the Bay Area and seeing all these posts ... I mean, there can't be that many Asian couples with fertility problems. Or I'm just blind. I don't know what to think. And this is going to become more rant-like, but doesn't the thought that these "highly professional" couples post up ads asking for people who've scored over 1500 on the (old) SATs, are blonde haired, blue eyed, and 5'6", slim figured highly bother you? I mean, I understand why they don't want their donor to be just any lady who'd give up her eggs in a snap but is smart enough to know what decision she's making. And I too, in their position, would prefer to have a kid without messed up genetics and one who looked kinda like myself... but their high standards seems so wrong for some reason. Like they're believers that success is inborn rather than an environment can mold someone to become successful? Can anybody point me to other communities that discuss egg donation ethics?
