UK clinic 'raffles off' human egg

New so-called baby-profiling service launched, which circumvents UK laws.

    A fertility clinic in Britain is "raffling" a human egg to promote its new so-called baby-profiling service, which circumvents British laws.

    The winner will be able to select the egg donor according to race, upbringing and education.

    While illegal in the UK, the free in vitro fertilisation treatment will be carried out in the US.
