Infertile academic seeks Oxbridge donor

first_imgAn infertile Oxford graduate has placed adverts at Oxford and Cambridge, asking for an egg donor.Sally Adams has placed adverts in the Oxford Mail and its Cambridge counterpart, asking only for donors who are university graduates and under 32.Adams, who studied zoology at Oxford, said she hoped to find a donor who is “educated, intellectual and possibly with connections with the colleges”.She has been criticised by some for attempting to create a ‘designer baby.’ Experts have pointed out that intellect is only partly based on genetics and that using an egg from Oxbridge would not guarantee an intelligent child.A second year Oxford student said, “I think it’s bit pathetic really. If she’s that desperate for a child surely she should be delighted to accept a donor regardless of their intellect. Andbesides, there’s no guarantee a clever mother means a clever child”.Adams has already found an appropriate source of sperm.last_img
