LEE | Stop Advertising Egg Donation to ‘Smart Asian Women’

As I casually scrolled through my Facebook newsfeed last month, a particular ad caught my eye. It seemed like one of those SAT test prep ads with a 20-something year-old Asian female holding books and gazing at the camera with a look of promise. It wasn’t until I read the name of the agency and the cheerful caption, “Make up to $10,000 and help out a family!”, that I realized it was an egg donation advertisement. I quickly scrolled back down my newsfeed, brushing off the thought that this had anything to do with me. But then again, a similar ad appeared on my Instagram feed just a couple days ago, once again encouraging me to monetize my eggs.
