Oklahoma City, OK – Bill to ban women selling eggs passes state House
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) The Oklahoma House has passed a bill that would ban women from selling their eggs.
The bill passed the House by an 85-8 vote and now heads to the Senate. Its author, Rep. Rebecca Hamilton, D-Oklahoma City, says the measure is necessary because women are being injured by the procedure used to obtain the eggs.
She says low-income women and college students are particularly vulnerable to enticements to undergo the procedure.
