Discounts on IVF for Egg Donors in UK

Newcastle Fertility Centre is offering women in northeastern England a £1500 discount on their IVF bills if they donate some of their eggs for therapeutic cloning and stem-cell research purposes. A spokesperson for the Centre commented that this will reduce the cost of IVF for some women, and that the donation poses no risks beyond those that accompany the IVF procedure; critics call the scheme "lunacy" and worry that it will pressure less wealthy infertile women into research donation. Britain's Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority has approved the practice, and the BBC reports that the Centre is receiving Medical Research Council funding for its "egg-sharing" scheme. The BBC report appears here.

I agree with you, but I'm curious: The most common objection I hear from people I know who are pro-life is that an impotent couple who wants a child can get the embryo implanted in herself. I maintain that it's wrong, but the recourse I fall back into is natural law theory when asked to explain (which is perfectly fine, but in my experience not that convincing). So are there any more concrete reasons to explain why that's wrong? Here i suggest peoples to go INDIA for IVF surrogacy, then you must search for Surrogacy India, Surrogate mother India, IVF India, IVF clinic India & IVF cost india. I found Go Surrogacy for this treatment in India. Hope you also like these.
