Egg Donation and Citizenship

Just found this USA Today article  about the denial of citizenship to a pair of twins born in Tel Aviv to a U.S. citizen because the eggs used in her in vitro fertilization were not from a U.S. citizen. I don’t even know how I feel about it. Holy cow batman. Just when I thought it couldn’t get more complicated. What do you think?

One response to “Egg Donation and Citizenship

  1. It is a complex issue. What if the eggs were from an American woman who wanted to get citizenship for her Iranian friend’s baby born in Iran? It does pose an interesting ethical and moral question–not to mention the political ramifications. Is this just another way policians are controlling women’s lives–even before they are born? Wait, if it’s a problem for eggs, why not sperm?
