In an article entitled “Surrogates: Redefining Motherhood,” CBS explores the increasingly popular act of carrying someone else’s child to term for monetary gain. According to the article,
The miracle has a high price. The fee for the entire surrogacy process ranges from $80,000 to well over $100,000.
Of that, doctors get $9,000 to $15,000; agencies, $15,000 to $20,000; and the surrogates? First-timers get $18,000 to $25,000; experienced surrogates, up to $40,000.
With the unfortunate condition our economy’s in at the moment, would you consider carrying someone else’s child for the sake of your family’s income?
