‘Nigeria, highest exporter of human eggs, embryos’

By Onozure Dania

LAGOS—Chairman of African Anti-abortion Coalition, Dr Philip Njemanze, has said Nigeria remained the highest exporter of human eggs and embryos.

Njemanze, who is also the chairman, Association of General and Private Medical Practitioners of Nigeria in Imo State, added that a study had shown that Nigeria had been trafficking in eggs in the international market since 2006 without the consent of the women or anybody.

He spoke at the annual Catholic Marriage, Family and Human Life Unit and Marriage Instructors Conference, which took place at Yaba, Lagos.

Njemanze, who spoke on the imminent danger facing the family in Nigeria, said if Nigeria allowed such a thing, about a 100 million eggs would be needed per year to supply laboratories to do their stem cell embryonic research.
