Spare Embryos on Craigslist?!

Embryos on Craigslist?!  Is this a thing of nightmares or simply one woman trying to expand her options?  After the McCreas had their two sons and daughter with the help of fertility treatments, they still had 18 spare embryos.  The couple debated using the embryos themselves, anonymously donating them to a fertility clinic, or donating the embryos for research but they were not completely satisfied with any of those options.  Instead they wished to keep in touch with the families they donated to—forming an ‘open adoption.’  After extensive communication, the McCreas gave 9 embryos to two different couples.  The featured video does not mention how the adoption was handled legally, or if lawyers were involved.  Global IVF encourages intended parents to explore all safe options, but be sure to work with fertility lawyers and established agencies to make sure all fertility treatment decisions are legal and right for your family.
