Hard to Find Chinese Egg Donors

World Journal, Posted: Jul 28, 2009

NEW YORK Compared to their Korean and Japanese counterparts, Chinese Americans face greater difficulties in finding egg donors from the same ethnicity even though the demand is increasing, reports the World Journal.

To give birth to a child of her own descent, it took Mrs. Cheung two years to find a Chinese egg donor because not many Chinese women are wiling to donate their eggs. Other than the complicated donating process, Helen Qi from Asian Egg Donation told the newspaper she believes traditional values of family members relate through blood prevented Chinese from receiving eggs and donating eggs.

Steve Masler from Donor Source, the largest egg bank in the United States, told World Journal, that out of 1,251 registered donors, 83 were Asians, but only four were purely Chinese. He is planning to import the first overseas Chinese eggs in the autumn of 2009.
