CNN report the latest news about job outsource to India: mother surogacy.

http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/asiapcf/12/30/india.wombs.for.rent.ap/index.html

Isn't there any job still sacred anymore? I am sad that the situation has worsen to this point. Will companies outsource accounting jobs too?

No pretty much not anymore. I watched a documentary not that long ago about the kidney business in Iran.... Pretty sad as well. Is it any worse than working in a sweat shop or in a dangerous factory?

Become a plumber. I doubt it'll ever be cost effective to fly one over from China to fix a broke pipe.

"The couples fly to Anand for the in-vitro fertilization and again for the birth."

Raises and interesting question for US folks doing this, is the child a US citizen????

Nope. At least from what I understand. You have to be born on US soil to be a citizen. I am sure you can easily fill out the paperwork to get the child a visa and a green card.

Actually, I am pretty sure that a child born to US citizens outside of the country would still be a US citizen. Guess I will have to find the time to ask Mr. Google this one, just to be know...

Here ya go. These children are not born to US citizens, but to Indian citizens. It is an interesting idea thou...and I am sure the courts will have a lot to say on the matter.

It will indeed be an interesting court battle one of these days. Genes, DNA, birth mother, etc etc etc...

This seems immoral to me with the number of children in the world waiting to be adopted...
