In the United States a woman can be paid for her time and effort to donate her eggs or to carry someone else’s baby. That is not so in most parts of the world, where paying a woman for her work (and make no mistake about it, it’s work) is illegal. That is exactly what Mellany and Simon have had to do as they live in New Zealand, where paying a woman for her services to donate her eggs is illegal. As a result, there are very few women who will donate for altruistic reasons, so many couples are forced to go abroad.
Nothing would be too great to realise the dream….You just expect that you’re going to get older get married have a family and live happily ever after.
Do we want to have markets of buying and selling for not only human tissue but also children, or babies? I think there are issues involved here ethically.
