BABY BY ANY MEANS
We read so much about the manufacture of babies by various means – whether by using donor eggs or donor sperm or by use of the would-be parents’ own genetic material, who are in need of a womb to rent. They call this surrogacy and the practice of this has led to gross exploitation of poor women in poor countries who will allow the use of her own womb or money.
The social repercussions of this scheme are dangerous and dehumanising as it treats human babies as manufactured objects and poor women as breeding machines.
