I suppose at this point I should expect it. But it doesn’t make me want to stop fighting it.
Some so-called professionals and women’s rights proponents continue over and over again, in the name of preventing state surrogacy legislation to prevail, to claim that surrogacy is the exploitation of poor women. Let’s be transparent here. Surrogacy legislation is designed actually to protect surrogates and Intended Parents to prevent exploitation and disappointment for both parties. I am a real proponent of women’s rights and I believe wholeheartedly in surrogacy.
