I know so-called "surrogacy" has been legal for years and is fairly common, but as far as I am concerned it is another form of prostitution, what with it exploiting desperate women so some well-to-do couples can have their "own" children. At least more or less their "own."
Can you imagine a kid growing up in this kind of situation and finding out in adulthood that he or she has been brought up in a twisted, perverted arrangement? At least with adoption it can be explained, but how in the hell can you explain exploiting a kid's birth mother and paying her for the "service"?
Worse still is the risk for custody battles between the birth mother and the couple.
It should never have been allowed in the first place, but this is what happens when you have this "libertarian" nonsense seeping into public policy.
Good southern Oregon has joined the movement of exploiting women for profit.
This is distinctly sick.
