"using a new transplant method involving umbilical cord blood"

Which as I learned recently, they aren't paying women for. Using us as a free resource yet again. The hospital won't let you take it (unless you practically steal it), but won't pay you for it either. Everything from stem cells and placenta, to now this it looks like. But, aside the fact women aren't being paid for it, it's turning women's bodies and parts into another commodity.

They let you take it but need to pay a third party service that stores it for you. It’s like $1k at least. I’m upset that I have to pay to keep tissue from my own body that could be used to help me or my family but complete strangers with diseases and defects get to benefit from it for free?
