Raffles, Human Eggs and the Market Place in Human Material
McHale, Jean V.
British Journal of Nursing 2010 March 25-April 7; 19(6): 388-389
This article considers a recent case of human eggs being made available as a raffle prize. It explores the issue of a market in human material. It considers how at present English law is in general against such commodification of human material. It explores the policy arguments for changing the law in the area and suggests that the issue of maintaining criminal prohibitions at a time when patients can bypass such restrictions by seeking treatment abroad should come under further reconsideration by policy makers.
