In a post at the blog Feministe, the writer states:
Rich white American women paying poor women of color in developing nations to gestate their children for them seems wrong. I don’t oppose reproductive technologies, but it gets trickier when you’re paying someone in a far less privileged situation to be a human incubator for you.I like to get to the bottom line. As women are aspiring to empower themselves and other women, while at the same time pursue scientific progress without room for ethical reflection, it turns out that women have actually been empowered to exploit other women. Interesting quandary.
