Comments on: Employers shouldn’t freeze women’s eggs http://blogs.reuters.com/data-dive/2014/10/16/why-employers-shouldnt-freeze-womens-eggs/ Mon, 23 Mar 2015 20:11:41 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: TheJason http://blogs.reuters.com/data-dive/2014/10/16/why-employers-shouldnt-freeze-womens-eggs/comment-page-1/#comment-308 Thu, 16 Oct 2014 18:12:01 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/data-dive/?p=1731#comment-308 Frankly… I would love for a news agency to ask a real professional their opinion for once, instead of going to the one person on their staff with an M.D. at the end of their name.

Freezing eggs has nothing to do with enabling women to work longer. For those that don’t know, there are a lot of women out there that are simply at a higher risk for pregnancy. Just go look up High Risk OB/GYN.

Freezing Eggs is extremely expensive, and is typically reserved for women who find out that their egg supplies are abnormally low. But they’re also used for women who might need to undergo risky procedures such as Chemotherapy, or when they need to have their ovaries removed. Freezing eggs is often a last resort for a woman to become a mother, or a couple to become a family. And the way most insurance policies are structured, it is rarely covered.

But lets not talk about all of the logical reasons why. I’d much rather read or listen to so middle-aged man’s opinion based solely on the assumption that Mark Zuckerburg and all of the other Tech CEO’s sat in a room one day trying to figure out how they can keep women from getting pregnant while working for them.
