It seems India has learned another method of exploiting its women, surrogate pregnancy.
There is an entire town in Gujarat, Anand that thrives on this trade, they hire wombs, negotiate the deal, take care of the deal and earn huge amount of money from that deal.
I wonder how these women feel, when they have to give away their own child after nurturing it with their blood for so many months! I can’t imagine doing that! If someone would have asked me that I would have handed that person over a list of orphanages in the area.
I have read some interviews of women who think that it is a good way of earning some money, a nice amount of cash, I was reading the interview of a woman in Delhi who has rented her womb for four times, handed over the kids to foreigners and has upgraded her status from starving to lower middle class.
I have read about a young girl rescued by west Bengal police, an orphan, she was kept in confinement by her stepmother and her brother (step uncle) – she was forced to give birth every year and the babies were sold. She was barely twenty one or twenty two when police rescued her. It’s a real news item; don’t even think that it’s hearsay. If it was not five or six years old I would have given you the date, I know the name of the paper, The Statesman, Bengali edition, it once was very good at fighting criminal activities in West Bengal then the communist government destroyed it, by attacking its journalists, vendors in open (well, we can assume what they did in stealth)!
I really wonder how many of those wombs are rented willingly.
So, my dear fellow Indians, don’t pretend that you care about women by shouting slogans, if you do, first try to treat them like human beings, with respect and kindness. Try to understand that they were not born to serve you or give birth to your future generations and bring them up; they were born because they had full right to be born. They may or may not serve you or your future generations, you should not judge, because you don’t have any right to do that! Oh yes, another thing, if your son marries a penniless girl welcome her with the same love which you have bestowed upon her if she was a millionaire’s daughter.
