It's unthinkable that children should be bought and sold in a civilized society, Yet consider these words from Deborah Spar at Fortune: "There’s something funny about the U.S. market for eggs. No, not the kind that spring from chickens and go into making pancakes, but those that come from humans and go into making babies." Stop for a moment and let that sink in… .  "U.S. Market for Human eggs." Human eggs are sold here from $5,000 and $50,000. At one time in our history, human beings were once bought and sold. That was on the slave auction block. Today, women are sized up online and if they have all the right dimensions and intelligence, they can fetch a pretty penny for their eggs. Unfortunately, few question whether this is ethically and morally right.
