Comment: Disturbing story that has not good outcomes regardless of how it will end.
Submission: In this case, the commissioning couple knew that one baby had Downs and asked the surrogate to abort but she declined due to religious views. Pity this was not canvassed before the transfer. The essence is that who has the greater right when one is renting a womb. Cannot help to think it is the commissioning couple. The underlying problem here is that many western governments have made surrogacy so difficult and or illegal that it forces couples to try elsewhere. When this happens, good governance is thrown out the window with agents and women keen to make some money from what is a natural process. The agents and other bodies involved in overseas surrogacy are only interested in money and overlook critical questions and common sense. If all goes well, then it is fine. But as in this situation, it does not, then it is bad for everyone. Make surrogacy uncomplicated and legal at home before criticism of what happens overseas.
