'Fertility Tourism'

The price of life

The lack of eggs in the UK has led to more and more couples taking desperate measures: "A lot of people are being literally turned into fertility tourists," Lockwood says. "For a woman of 42, given the choice between a three-year wait for a home-grown egg or being able to hop over to Spain to a clinic that offers excellent care, where they speak English, there is no waiting list and the cost is not much greater than in the UK ... Well, it's not a particularly difficult decision."
