Wealthy Chinese Couples Hire Wombs Of Cash-Strapped Us Women To Combat Soaring Infertility

RICH Chinese couples are renting the wombs of cash-strapped American women for up to £73,000 per baby to combat soaring infertility rates.

Since 2012 inquiries from rich Chinese people to agencies for US surrogates has risen tenfold and are expected to double during the next two years.

Surrogacy is illegal in China so couples who are infertile have increasingly turned to the US where the procedure is legal and well established.

The surge comes as infertility rates have risen from three per cent 20 years ago to 12.5 per cent of all adults in China currently.

..

Most of the surrogates come from working class families and command fees of around £15,000.

John Weltman, president of the Circle Surrogacy in Boston, said America was without doubt the safest place for surrogacy.

Surrogate babies born in the US will also have the rights to American citizenship.

Infertility growing due to Chinese pollution?

Will they also be choosing the sex as well?

It would be a lot cheaper to do it in India or Thailand. Clearly they are after the added benefit of US citizenship for their kids.

"Surrogate babies born in the US will also have the rights to American citizenship."

Case solved.

Still, good to see the rich having to rent.

$15k to buy american citizenship for your children. That is an outrageous bargain.

And can the parents use this as leverage towards citizenship for themselves?

Yes, there's a category of green card specifically for parents of citizens. I think the child would have to be resident in the US and 21 years old before being able to apply though.

edit: added the age part
