Embryo Donor Application - Identifying Information (1/13)
Thank you for considering donating your embryos to Embryo Donation International (EDI)! After the information is entered, the staff of EDI will review it and contact the facility that created your embryos. If we feel that we can find a wonderful home for your embryos, we will contact you and start the process to bring the embryos to our facility. We do our best to accomplish all of this within 10 days of your application!
Why "Embryo Donation" and NOT "Embryo Adoption"?
Adoption refers to the legal process where a new relationship is created between a parent and a live child. Adoptions can only be granted by the court after the birth of a child. Embryo donation, however, is regulated by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) and not the courts. While we at EDI feel your embryos deserve a tremendous amount of respect, assigning personhood to an embryo has tremendous moral, ethical and legal ramifications.
