Rich people FedEx embryos to women in India for cheap surrogacy
Thursday, June 14, 2012 - By Life News

The Church has always rejected surrogacy and for very good reason. It objectifies both the woman whose womb has been rented and the child for whom a contract has been made for delivery. Nowhere is this arrangement more exploitive than when rich westerners go to places like India and get a uterus on the cheap. Not only are the embryos sometimes shipped by FedEx overseas to be transferred to a woman the parents have never actually met, but the dangers to the surrogate are substantial. Because she is usually poor and “working” to help support her family by renting out her body, the contract she signs often places the health and well-being of the child above her own, something that would not happen with a Western surrogate.

FedEx does not accept shipments of Embryos from humans or animals period. I'm pro-life myself and its not good practice to throw a company name out there.
