California "Pay-for-Eggs" Bill on the Governor’s Desk
If you agree that more research on short- and long-term risks is needed before expanding the market for women’s eggs, please act quickly. Contact Governor Brown and ask him to veto AB 926. You can reach him in any of these ways:
- Email: [email protected]
- Fax: (916) 558-3160
- Call: (916) 445-2841
- Postal mail: Governor Jerry Brown, Attn: Lark Park, Deputy Legislative Secretary, State Capitol Suite 1173, Sacramento, CA 95814
- Update: California Bill Would Overturn Protections for Women Providing Eggs for Research
- California Lawmakers Consider Paying Women to Provide Eggs for Research
Our Bodies Ourselves (1, 2) and Alliance for Humane Biotechnology have also posted valuable information about what’s wrong with this bill.
And over the last couple weeks, AB 926 has been receiving increasing media attention. The most recent and in-depth article is “Brown ponders sale of women's eggs for research” in Capitol Weekly. It’s also been covered by Nature, Southern California Public Radio, the California Stem Cell Report (1, 2, 3, 4), and in an hour-long interview on Mutiny Radio.
