IVF competition 'alarming'


Fertility doctors are offering the chance to win a free donor egg treatment cycle to someone who attends a seminar in London and is medically eligible for the treatment.

The winner will be able to select the donor of the egg on race, background, and other characteristics, something that is not currently possible in the UK.

Dr Laurence Udoff, a reproductive endocrinologist at the Genetics and IVF Institute which is offering the free treatment, and Dr Allan Pacey, fertility expert at the University of Sheffield, debate the ethics of this new competition.
