Eggsploitation: The Movie

Eggsploitation-poster-01-med The infertility industry has grown into a multi-billion dollar business in the United States. Its primary commodity is human eggs.
Young women are solicited by ads on college
campus bulletin boards, social media, and online classifieds which offer them up
to $100,000 for their “donated” eggs. They will “help make someone’s dream come
true” they're told.

But what about the target of the solicitation, the potential egg donor? Is she treated justly? What are the
short- and long-term risks to her health? Are these issues even discussed?

They should be. Here's a good place to start. Eggsploitation, produced by the Center for Bioethics and Culture, examines this booming business through the tragic and revealing stories of real women who became
involved in it and whose lives were permanently altered because of it. 

National Director Jennifer Lahl will be offering the first preview screening of Eggsploitation this Thursday, July 8th, at 7:00pm at the Covenant Presbyterian Church, 2012 W Dickens Avenue, Chicago, IL 60647. Screening is free. College students are especially invited.

  1. The idea for this exhibition actually came from an architect and a fashion designer. The Amsterdam–based fashion label Ontfront by Liza Koifman and Tomas Overtoom was in touch with architect Wouter Valkeneir since they were working on a project together. At the time the architect was doing a project for a coffee bar and needed somebody who could do the textile part and the staff uniforms and that’s where Ontfront came in. After they met and realised they had similar ways about conceptual design and really got it off, they regretted the fashion designers only participated in the project when the architectural design was finished and thought it would have been interesting to see what would have happened if both an architect and dfa fashion designer would have been given a brief and would have been asked to work together. So they got in touch with ARCAM and submitted us their idea.

    • Possono fare molto di pi sotto il punto di vista grafico. Il cubo ha fatto cose morliigi.Ormai quando esce un gioco per wii si spera sempre e solo che sia giocabile, io preferisco sempre pensare che sia si giocabile ma che abbia pure una grafica all’altezza del wii, e la maggior parte della roba che esce non all’altezza delle potenzialit di questa console
