Commercial Surrogacy is the process whereby an individual or couple pay for a ovum and contribute sperm , then rent a womb after agreeing to a set amount of money to the birth mother. The child once born is a citizen of the country of the parent who donated the sperm and paid for the ovum and surrogacy (usually the father in gay couples) It’s pricey in the US 150K but cheaper in Third World Countries (14 to 30K) with birth mother getting 5 to 6K. http://time.com/3838319/israel-nepal-surrogates/
This is big business for some of these Third World Countries (and the US):
"rough estimates suggest that the surrogacy business is already worth more than $350 million a year, according to a recent report by the New Delhi-based Sama Resource Group for Women and Health. Meanwhile, industry estimates suggest that some 50,000 people visit India annually seeking surrogate mothers, resulting in around 2,000 births per year -- and providing livelihoods, albeit controversially, to thousands of poor, unskilled women". https://www.adn.com/nation-world/article/israeli-sex-offender-taps-indias-booming-surrogacy-trade-baby-girl/2013/06/11/
Nepal, Cambodia, Thailand, India, the US: all have at some point legalized commercial surrogacy.
“Surrogacy is fast becoming the preferred route for gay couples to have children, so much so that the trend is now known as the “Gaybe” revolution. “http://www.newfeminism.co/2015/06/surrogacy-and-gay-couples/
Gays who are unable to make families feel that it is their right to have families.Becoming a biological parent by renting a womb gives them an avenue toward starting a family.
Of course there’s always those “few” bad apples that spoil it for the rest:
Pedophiles have been able to circumvent screening and produce their biologicaL children via rent-a-womb
An Israeli paedophile, who has served a year-and-a-half in jail for sexually abusing children, managed to adopt a four-year-old girl through an arrangement with a surrogate mother in India. What has raised hackles even more is that the Israel government has not been able to take custody of the girl from the paedophile as the country’s laws do not empower it to do so
Israel says the situation is being monitored but there are no laws that allow the child to be removed from the father . https://www.adn.com/nation-world/article/israeli-sex-offender-taps-indias-booming-surrogacy-trade-baby-girl/2013/06/11/
However, in another case (https://www.sott.net/article/390322-Gay-parents-bought-boy-from-surrogate-mother-raped-him-daily-then-brought-him-around-the-world-to-be-raped-by-other-pedophiles ) public oversight is sometimes ineffectual due to the “training” that some of these children receive from their biological parent/predator : “Adam was made to believe that the life he lived was normal. He was also trained to give 'correct' answers if questioned about his life by an outsider, so when investigators first talked to him they got no information about his parents' double life. “
Because of the outcry over the Israeli situation, India now forbids homosexual couples to purchase surrogacy in their country. Enterprising Israeli agencies that handle this type of business have figured out that they can send the pregnant surrogate from India to Nepal to give birth in Nepal. (Gays are not allowed in Israel to engage in commercial surrogacy.) https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Babies-born-to-surrogate-mothers-in-Nepal-face-religious-obstacles-once-they-arrive-here-400502
Another example of surrogacy gone wrong was in Thailand 2014
A heterosexual couple paid for a surrogate pregnancy, the birth mom gave birth to two one of whom has Downs syndrome and the couple makes off with the “healthy” twin and leaves the surrogate mother to care for the rejected twin. Additionally,the biological father was a convicted pedophile.
“It was ruled Pipah is not allowed to be alone with David Farnell (the father) and the agreement that she must be read a photobook with age appropriate language every three months for the foreseeable future that explains her father's offenses.
Now foreigners can’t come to Thailand for commercial surrogacy and only heterosexual native couples can access the process.
Apart from these cases, the whole issue of homosexuals renting wombs has drawn criticism from some including some gays themselves:
“In truth there is a huge streak of misogyny throughout this business, with women treated as worthless or little more than reproductive machines. As Germaine Greer said at Hay, all traditional notions of motherhood, even female identity, are being written out of the script. I was told that one gay couple had such loathing for the biological role of the mother that they even insisted that their (paid-for) baby should be born by caesarean section so it was not tainted by travelling down the vaginal canal.”
“Fixated by vanity, imbued with overweening self-regard, they want to create a child in their own image, meeting a checklist of ideal characteristics. This kind of narcissism reached a grotesque logical conclusion in the case of the American lesbian couple Sharon Duchesneau and Candy McCullogh, both deaf since birth, who made the headlines in 2002 when they embarked on a search for a congenitally deaf sperm donor. Having been turned down by a number of sperm banks, they then approached a friend who had five generations of deafness in his family and was deaf himself. He agreed to their request, and a deaf child was brought into the world.”
Some wealthy gays such as Elton John age 71 and his 55 y.o. spouse/”mother” of his two surrogate- purchased children ages 7 & 5 are able to create a family even though it appears that Elton John may not be able to physically keep up with a young family (he had to be lifted by handlers from the beach to his boat while on vacation (https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/6892658/sir-elton-john-carried-boat-minders-david-furnish/)
His qualifications to be a parent (other than being immensely wealthy) are somewhat doubtful due to his inclination to collect “art” that is deemed child porn :” the photo in question by Nan Golden American, called "Klara and Edda Belly-Dancing", shows a partly clothed girl dancing above a naked girl who is kneeling with her legs apart and towards the camera and her back arched to the floor. The girls are no more than seven years old” https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/this-britain/the-strange-case-of-sir-eltons-obscene-photo-first-time-around-403934.html
Then there’s the issue of open marriages of gay parents effect on their children: “here’s a dirty little secret about gay marriage that isn’t actually all that secret: for a great many gay couples—gay men at the very least—“marriage” is not, strictly speaking, marriage: most gay couples are not monogamous.” http://thefederalist.com/2016/06/10/elton-john-inflates-the-big-gay-marriage-lie/
