The Ultimate Outsourcing: Womb Rental

That’s some serious outsourcing.

India takes outsourcing to a new level as women rent out wombs to foreigners – the Daily Mail: “In a new twist to the outsourcing for which India has become renowned, poor Indian women are renting out their wombs to foreigners.

Surrogate motherhood – carrying to term and giving birth to another woman’s baby – was once limited in India to helping close relatives who couldn’t complete a pregnancy due to medical difficulties.

But leading gynecologist Dr. Kamla Selvaraj says it’s now becoming a regular “profession” in India, with more and more women willing to carry babies for others, for a fee.

India has for years provided foreigners with in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment at a cheaper rate than the equivalent services in Western countries.”
