Article in The Atlantic: Confessions of an Egg Donor

I found this April 4th article equally riveting and blood boiling. She seems to have a deep seated anger toward egg donation, and to the women specifically who are the recipients. I wonder how she would feel if she hadn't found out her problem with genetics, and the impact it may have on her own fertility.

Curious to hear your thoughts on this article. It is long, but I wasn't able to put it down.

Here is the link:

Baby Blessings,
