Do you want your employer to pay for freezing your eggs?

I saw the article about Facebook and Apple paying for egg freezing for their female employees. When I saw the headline, I was instantly angry! I understand why some women may choose to put their careers in front of having a family, but are the tech companies also educating these women about the risks with freezing eggs, and the probability of conceiving later in life?

Why do women have to choose between career and family?

What do you think of this announcement?

  1. I think instead of offering to pay for egg freezing, they should improve the situation for working parents, for instance, longer and shared parental leave and the possibility to work part time after having a kid. It’s a lot easier for parents in Europe!

    • The article did talk about adoption and fertility treatments, which is great. Having these options are great, but are the companies really putting their female employees first, or are they worried about the company first?
