How a noble cause was turned into a business where the commodities are babies.
Excellent writing on a very difficult subject, loved it!
You have written a deep analysis on the concerning topic of surrogacy, Laura. I can't help but be reminded of something similar to this in "The Giver", a dystopian book by Lois Lowry. In the said book, if I remember it right, couples no longer bear children of their own. Child-bearing in that society had been delegated to a group of women known as Birthmothers. After being nurtured for a time, the babies are then assigned/placed to families that they will recognize as their own for life.
