Mom Corps CEO and Founder Allison O’Kelly talks about Apple and Facebook’s new “benefit” for their female employees: freezing their eggs.
“I think this sets a horrible tone to send to female employees and can quickly go down a very slippery slope. I can’t help but think that as time goes on, there will become a culture where people believe that if you are really dedicated to your job, you will go through an invasive procedure to have your eggs frozen and be an “older” mom. There will be pressure for women to delay childbearing even though there are real social and physical risks for having children later. “
