For many Australian couples unable to be parents the desperation can be overwhelming. As a result, more and more of them are now paying donors for eggs. It’s a dangerous path to go down because it’s against the law in this country. If caught they face harsh penalties including prison sentences of up to 15 years.

Some are demanding up to $20,000, with no guarantees their eggs will even lead to babies. In a 60 Minutes investigation Allison Langdon reveals a cruel black market trade in human eggs and warns of an urgent need to make our complicated donor laws fairer.
