Potential payment for eggs in New York: An update
On Monday, the ethics committee of New York state's stem cell research program met, and among its the agenda items was consideration of payments for women to provide eggs for stem cell research. CGS and the Pro-Choice Alliance for Responsible Research sent a letter to the committee urging them to reject payments, and Newsday published an op-ed which I authored with the same message.
However, the committee spent most of its time on developing proper informed consent procedures, and deferred consideration to its next meeting. A video of the meeting is available online.
