china has a booming illegal underground surrogacy market
Today the New York Times reported on Chinas booming underground surrogacy market. While surrogacy is not legal in China, and people are limited to one child, a market has cropped up to meet local demand.
Interestingly, the reported cost ($240,000) of using this underground system is equal or more to that in California, where it is legal. The New York Times article goes on to report the surrogates are essentially confined and brainwashed thought the process to prevent them from keeping the baby.
Why not come to California where surrogacy is legal, nobody is exploited, and the cost is less?
