N.Y. to Pay for Eggs for Stem Cell Research: Policy Is a First Among States; Critics Fear That Women Will Be Exploited

Author: Rob Stein
QUOTE: New York has become the first state to allow taxpayer-funded researchers to pay women for giving their eggs for embryonic stem cell research, a move welcomed by many scientists but condemned by critics who fear it will lead to the exploitation of vulnerable women....But the field is highly controversial, largely because the cells are derived by destroying days-old embryos, a process some consider the equivalent of killing a person.
