Surrogate mother businesses are moving to Cambodia.

What could possibly go wrong ? It's ethical, it's beautiful...and ... it's Cambodian clinics. :wtf:
Cambodia proves fertile ground for foreign surrogacy after Thailand ban
With surrogacy bans now in place in Thailand, India and Nepal, the business is being pushed across borders.

“Many would-be parents whose budget limits them to Asia have no other options than to try their luck in Cambodia, especially gay couples,” says Sam Everingham, director of the Australian non-profit organisation Families Through Surrogacy, which informs aspiring parents on overseas surrogacy options.

Everingham has observed how agencies and clinics forced to close in Thailand simply moved their lucrative business into Cambodia, where infertility treatment was non-existent until two years ago.

Today, clinics in the capital, Phnom Penh, are offering IVF and embryo-transfers, and agencies offer services for overseas couples. Some claim to be fully booked for months. Here, surrogacy packages start at $33,000 (£25,400), compared with $90,000-$150,000 in the US.

“We have to be aware that surrogacy is a foreign concept in Cambodia. No laws are in place to regulate the process, leaving both parents and surrogates unprotected,” warns Everingham.

For Preeti Bista, owner of the Nepalese surrogacy agency My Fertility Angel, the unclear rules and low costs are precisely what make Cambodia an attractive place to set up what she says will be an ethical surrogacy business. “Since surrogacy has been put on hold in Nepal, I have both desperate surrogates and parents calling me non-stop, asking me if I can help them. I am now trying to do just that in Cambodia. The key is to provide transparency to all parties involved.”

Bista has been accused of exploiting people’s poverty and lack of options. She says all she does is to help people have babies – “the most beautiful thing in the world”...

I hope this gets closed down really soon, it's despicable exploitation.

Despicable? Exploitative?

Assuming all goes well, there are plenty of fertile women in Cambodia who would be willing to do the job for the money mentioned in the article - around $8,000 (depending on the exchange rate.)

Worked out by the month, that's a pretty decent salary, by local standards. If a healthy woman did it five or ten times, she's be
coming into riches.

But how about if the biological fatherand mother parents (assuming that there IS a female momma whose own daddy-fertilised ovum is being used) reject the child because the baby is born disabled or blind? Or maybe they split up and want to cancel the whole deal.

There are more than enough social/ethical issues here to keep the debating society busy for weeks.

Most of us are from societies in which large families are increasingly rare, so the idea of a woman giving birth ten or more times is
alarming, if not appalling.

However, Hutterite women in North America used to have ten or more healthy* children and regard it as natural.

http://family.jrank.org/pages/837/Hutte ... ility.html

The Hutterite birthrate is lower now, probably five or six births per woman. Higher than the North American norm, but not
dramatically so.

* The Bedu woman in the families of Saudi National Guard recruits often gave birth to a dozen or more children, but
used to accept it as natural that a third - or more - of their children would die in infancy.
