Designer babies – Rent A Womb Woman – IVF .

Posted on December 9, 2007. Filed under: Social Issues | Tags: , , , , |

You can now have the type of baby according to your preferred choice. It is a very idealistic situation where modern science is able to make your dreams come true. You don’t have to leave it to fate or nature to decide.

Whether it is morally or ethical correct is another matter. This is the world of test tube babies. IVF was developed in the 1970’s.

There are several techniques of IVF. The woman is given fertility drugs to help her produce more eggs. The eggs are then harvested and fertilized in the lab and then are placed inside her womb or a surrogate womb.

You can decide the sex of the baby you want and the characteristics of the baby from the donor mother of your choice.

Gays and lesbian couples want to have children but since they are of the same sex, it is not possible physically but if you are loaded, anything is possible. You can buy designer babies through IVF and surrogate mothers. Infertile couples could have children by this method too.

A gay couple from Australia went to the US to buy a set of designer twin boys through a surrogate mother. They ordered the two babies through Los Angeles based American IVF pioneer Dr. Jeffrey Steinberg. The doctor used their sperms with a donor egg and they became the father of the twin boys through the IVF and embryo screening known as Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD )

The gay couples were able to choose their baby to order, using the donated eggs from their preferred selected donors with characteristics and educational levels of their choice. They looked for intelligence, good looks and health of the donor.

The fertilized embryos are then implanted into a surrogate woman, usually a single mother or married women in their late 20s or early 30s.. It is quite an expensive process. and some seek those process in India where it is cheaper.

In the West, sometimes the surrogate moms grow attached to the child and do not want to give up their children after they were born. In India, the lure of the money is enticing many Indian women to become rent a womb women.

Having the baby is the first process on the road to legal and ethical considerations. If the parents are gays and lesbians, they may not grow up in an environment where there are no fathers or mothers influence. This is subjected to debate because even if they grow up in a heterosexual family, the fathers are often absent or don’t play a big part in the upbringing of the child.

The major problem is legal for the donors are anonymous and the child will grow up not knowing who their biological fathers or mothers are. It may not be important because there are orphans who grow up without parents too.

What about those who go to the unlicensed one’s?

The law says that men donating sperm through licensed fertility clinics are not the legal father of any child born through that donation.

Men donating their sperm in any other way – such as via internet services or through private arrangements are legally the father of any children born This means that you are legally the father of the child and you are responsible even though you have a private contract absolving you of any child maintenance.

If you think you are helping a friend to have a baby , better think twice because you may be in the future be called upon to pay for his maintenance.

Or you could be in a situation where you want to be near that child but is forbidden by that woman as you don’t not have any rights. Either way , you may find yourself in a situation which is unsatisfactory to you, just like that fireman in UK.

IVF has its drawbacks and it is not plain sailing as what is advertised or reported. According to Catherine Bennett, IVF have only a 15% success rate and the fertility clinics makes money from those failures. This means that you may have to have several attempts and which will cost your dearly.

You will be taking those daily drug doses which may have a side effects on you. You may suffer depression, hot flushes and dizziness. A third of couples have twins or triplets because doctors implant several embryos into the woman to maximize her chances of success. You may have bargained for more than you asked.

Sometimes, there is the human error factor and the eggs got mixed up and given to the wrong mother. There is also the risk of cancer or any genetic damage to the newborn. Those are all the risk you may face.

sperm donors are doing a good thing by donating sperm, if we start making them pay for it no one will donate sperm and people will be sad : ( no one is going to get accidently pregant through the use of a sperm donor

Laura1318:- If you do it the legal way ,then you do not have to worry . When you donate them online or without going through the sperm banks , you can be legally responsible for the cost of raising the baby .
