Plus interesting story from this morning's USA Today about outsourcing pregnancy to India! Every night in the quiet western Indian city of Anand, 15 pregnant women prepare for sleep in the spacious house they share, ascending the stairs in a procession of ballooned bellies, to bedrooms that become a landscape of soft hills. The young mothers are pregnant with the children of infertile couples from around the world. More than 50 women in this city are now pregnant with the children of couples from the United States, Taiwan, Britain and beyond. The women earn more than many would make in 15 years. But the program raises a host of uncomfortable questions that touch on morals and modern science, exploitation and globalization, and that most natural of desires: to have a family.
And hey - it's the new year! Happy New Year to you. Hope it's a wonderful, peaceful and prosperous.
