Summary What can an anthropological study of Israeli cross-border egg donation contribute to the important debate of the global ethics of human egg traffic? What happens to nationalism and citizenship in an era of globalised egg trade? How are women's bodies in different national contexts positioned in unequal and conflicting relationships with each other under capitalism? In addition to addressing these issues, Michal Nahman also asks methodological questions for anthropologists and other social scientists about how we tell stories about science and the body. She explores whether we simply tell these stories in a vacuum or whether they are global developments important not just as a backdrop but as an integral part of the story of new reproductive technologies
