The pain of IVF: Italian woman vows to keep the IVF babies from someone else’s eggs | Feminist Perspectives on Egg Donation |

The emotional turmoil it entails is so intense that a recent Danish study showed that couples who tried it and ended up childless were three times more likely to separate than those who were successful. To go though all this you have to really want not just children, but your children, the bearers of you and your partner's DNA. So imagine what it must feel like to be the Italian woman who discovered that someone else's fertilised eggs had been implanted in her womb.
