The Ultimate Outsource

 Just saw a remarkable segment on the Today show; there is a trend to use women in India as surrogate mothers. One main reason? It's cheaper! Now, where have we heard that one before? Granted, the women in the "womb-for-hire" program have more health care than the average Indian citizen, but the death in childbirth rate in India is 26 times as large as the US. We don't lose sleep over the fact that Michael Jorden is paid more than all the people making Nike sneakers, combined; we don't how the people live who make our chap toys in China (unless, gasp! some lead gets in); so why should we care about some poor Indian girls possibly dying? I mean we only have 4,000,000,000 people on Earth, so what's a few more? Maybe infertility is Nature's way of saying, "ENOUGH!" God forbid Americans adopt some of the millions of homeless orphans (Brad and Angelina excepted), let's make more, more, more. I'm sure there is a way pharmaceutical manufacturers are making a buck here, should we look deep enough, but hey, "It's nothing personal; it's just business."
