The past 30 years have witnessed rapid evolution and growing demand for assistive reproductive technologies (ARTs): technologies that assist in achieving and monitoring a pregnancy. The ART market is a unique one – fueled by parents willing to go to great lengths to conceive. The demand is high and desire deep. ARTs have led to medical service markets, and markets for gametes and surrogacy. The focus of this lecture will be on the market of egg donation in Canada – a market in which donors are in scarce demand. Based on qualitative interviews conducted with Canadian intended parents, egg donors, and fertility specialists, this lecture will examine the barriers and ethical dilemmas faced by intended parents seeking donor eggs. Additionally, this lecture will address the implications of this data for Canadian regulation surrounding the use of donor eggs.
