It definitely is a money based transaction. Though it seems more like buying babies and selling babies.. These rich bratty females who dont want to spoil their figure and body by having a baby, pay others for having their baby... and then abandon the baby if there is a problem or abnormality. Sick world
It isnt to do with rich bratty females not wanting to ruin their figure by having a baby.
Its because many females are UNABLE to carry a baby and many males too, are unable to father a baby. Hence the need for IVF treatments in the first place. Some women dont produce healthy eggs to be fertilised, have blocked tubes or cant carry a baby full term without miscarrying.
Couples turn to IVF rather than adoption as they want a child that is biologically their own.
Unfortunately IVF treatments and surrogates are beyond the reach of many "rich couples" in Western countries...Due to the cost & bureaucracy. Hence they travel abroad. Its also very hard to adopt in the UK for example and the waiting list for those approved could be years long.
The other thing regarding this particular case...The Thai mum says she didnt realise the implications of surrogacy, thats she,s young. But she,s not too young to join an agency to get paid, or to be married and be the mother of two children of her own?
Im sorry but i have no sympathy for the Thai mum either as she set out to be pregnant for money, she carried a baby that she knew very well was disabled and now wants more money and also a house from the childs suffering...A child that SHE decided to carry knowing his disabilities and that he was unwanted before he was born.
