Altruism v. compensation: There's currently a battle waging between for-profit and nonprofit worlds for control over regulating the "breast-milk industry" in US.
"Going for as much as $4 per ounce, breast milk is a hot commodity that is emerging as a surprisingly cutthroat industry, one that states are seeking to regulate amid a battle for control between nonprofit and for-profit banks that supply hospital neonatal units.... Each side claims the moral high ground, with nonprofits generally saying milk distribution should be altruistic and for-profit companies arguing mothers deserve to be compensated."-- Associated Press, via the Youngstown (OH) Vindicator
