Unfortunately, our cultural often heralds the big fertility industry despite the drastic and negative effects it has on babies and women.
Surrogacy using donated sperm and/or eggs is becoming more commonplace and even trendy but it’s a detrimental practice that inevitably harms women and babies.
Paying someone else to make or carry a baby that may or may not have any of your DNA is a lucrative racket that’s taken off in the U.S. and rakes in billions of dollars each year. It’s also growing increasingly popular for gay couples or even some women who want to avoid the pregnancy symptoms and body changes required of carrying a baby, but just because it’s an option doesn’t mean it’s ethical.
Some celebrities such as Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra, Elon Musk and his ex-girlfriend Grimes, and Anderson Cooper and his ex-partner have taken advantage of the expensive baby creation market and been praised for normalizing the Big Fertility industry.
