Women touting their bodies to sell dream of the perfect child
>From James Bone in New York

THE unnamed women post their photographs and vital statistics on the
internet to sell their services.

No 844, a 26-year-old aspiring banker of English descent with a 34in
bust, straight brown hair and high cheekbones, whose brother is an air
force intelligence officer, describes herself as "attractive,
easygoing, humorous, intelligent, and well-rounded". She says that she
loves horseriding and Pretty Woman, the film starring Julia Roberts.

No 650, a married 32-year-old law student with two children who has
blue eyes, brown hair and a 30in waist, plays the piano and enjoys
rock climbing, claims that she is "energetic, happy, honest,
intelligent, and thoughtful". Her favourite animal: a salmon.

These women, and dozens of others listed on the website of the
Genetics & IVF Institute, in Washington, are not exactly selling their
bodies. They are offering their eggs for a fee.

The growing practice of egg donation in America is in the spotlight
because of a new book by Debora Spar, of Harvard Business School,
called The Baby Business.
