    @Sunnygirl04 so true. The ABC are currently doing a long investigative piece on egg donation after I commented on a transcript........ so happy they listened to me.

    Hi ladies not sure if someone else put up details. Not a nice article...also very down on the Known Egg Donors that are coming to Brisbane (which is what I'm doing). i get worried too that they'll somehow put a stop to it all...we are so close

    The donors coming here is illegal but travelling overseas is not. VARTA are very clear about this.

    I am certain he must be friendly with the large aussie egg donation group as are the Courier Mail. The egg donation group are not happy they are being shunned in preference for uncomplicated overseas young donors. Oddly there is more regulation in South Africa than Australia but I didn't see that mentioned either.

    Hey KMP how can the donors coming here be illegal? Is that what you meant? Sorry if it isn't. I am 100% confident that QFG and their auditors and all the board and governance people there would not be going ahead with this Known Egg program if it was any way illegal. I've actually personally talked to QFG's CEO Steve Zappia. The Donors aren't being paid, they're known to the recipient and no different to it being a recipient's cousin from another country travelling here for known donation and having their expenses paid.

    What a terrible article! He's talking about 2 completely different things in 1 article. How can it be illegal only for Qlders and especially if its legal in the country you go to. What cr*p!!!

    Default Egg Donation in South Africa #12

    On another note my mum has said there is a sensational article in the Courier Mail today stating travel to SA for egg donation as illegal and other things. My mum's 102 year old friend even said it sounded dodgy. I know CM always publishes egg donation stories for the prominent egg donation site so I am thinking it is all related. Can anyone get the article? I can't find it online.
    I bought the CM just to see the article - I was told about it by a colleague.
    It's poorly written and filled with misinformation.
    I did get the vibe it was based on info supplied by those (prominent local ED site with ferocious participants 😉) against the new program run by Wazza that brings SA donors to Qld to donate.
    I'm guessing they are cranky that they no longer hold all the cards to bully recipients....

    ^^I understand this to be true too. I believe it's legal because it's a known donor and it's altruistic. Which are the two major factors governing ED in Australia.

    @Blinky76 would you be able to PM me about the ED site you are talking about that bully people. I joined up a site a few days ago so want to make sure its not them although i cant imagine there would be too many organizations out there for it? So probably is! Thanks ☺

    ECM, I know egg donations Australia is administered, however egg donors australia isn't, so that one's probably a free for all. I hope this helps.
